The Local 'Record Man' 


The days of the hippie-dippie local 
promo man who got by — with occasional 
success — with radio station relation- 
ships that amounted to a flip hey-baby- 
play-my-record are on the road to extinc- 
tion. This is the sum conclusion of con- 
versations with various sales-promo 
execs. Local promo, these individuals 
assert, has evolved into a great deal 
more than 99% reliance on a guy whose 
very personality turns a local music 
scene on. “For the national promo 
exec," one of these execs explains, 
“radio station contact — the fruits of 
which, hopefully, is getting a record on 
the playlist — is half the job done. For 
the local promo man, it amounts to only 
20% of the job done.” 

What is getting the job done all the 
way? This really means that a local 
promo rep must think of himself as a 
“record man” rather than one who as- 
sumes he can call it a day when the 
sound of a record he is working on 
makes a playlist. Assuming that a cer- 
tain disk is deemed worthy of a station’s 
willingness to give it a try, most stations 
won’t stay with it more than two weeks 
if audience response isn’t encouraging. 
This gives the promo rep a vital period of 
10 days or so to follow-through. That 
follow-through entails an immediate 
check with a distrib making him aware 
that the record is being played, contact 
with large retailers and one-stops to 
check on whether they are receiving 


inventory on the record, etc. The local 
promo man, in short, does the job right 
when he is truly an extension of the 
activities that are done on a larger scale 
at the home office. 

And what about his relationship with 
local radio stations? Here, too, the local 
man’s functions should go beyond the 
area of “glorified messenger-boy.” A 
good example of this is to display to 
radio personnel an awareness of all 
product that’s on the market. He can, 
for instance, endear himself to pro- 
grammers if he can occasionally recom- 
mend a disk he’s heard, even if it 
doesn’t happen to bear the logo of the 
company he represents. Such a relation- 
ship is mature and can set a foundation 
of mutual respect. 

Many of the industry’s leading record 
men have drawn from the local promo 
field. The disk industry is more complex 
than ever, and signs are that it will con- 
tinue to call heavily on people with a 
well-rounded knowledge of the music 
business. It makes sense for the present 
success of a company and the recruit- 
ment of national manpower for the local 
promo man to approach his radio station 
contact function as one step in a chain 
of steps that are required to see a record 
through. Taking on multi-faceted re- 
sponsibilities is the hallmark of today’s 
promo (record) man.

Myers Leaves Acta To 
Form New H'wood Label 

HOLLYWOOD — Kenny Myers has 
resigned his post as general manager 
of Acta Records, the Dot label affiliate, 
to form his own record company. 
Myers, who officially leaves his post 
Aug. 1, said he will have his new label 
in operation by mid-Aug., with initial 
sides on the market by Sept. 1. He will 
continue to headquarter in Hollywood 
and is presently scouting talent and 
personnel. Manufacturing and distri- 
bution arrangements for the yet-to-be 
named label will be set within 30 days. 

Myers joined Dot in Dec., 1966, fol- 
lowing a 15-year association with Mer- 
cury Records. He formed Acta in 1967 
and was named general manager. Hit 
acts at the label included the American 
Breed and Peppermint Trolley Com- 
pany. 

Arnold Burk, Paramount Pictures’ 
vp in charge of music operations, said 
that Myers “stewardship of the Acta 
label contributed significantly to Dot’s 
overall growth.” He said he accepted 
the resignation with “great reluct- 
ance.” Burk noted that Acta will con- 
tinue as an “important factor” in Dot’s 
operations. 


FRONT COYER: 



If the first two Cream album re- 
leases took people by storm, “Wheels 
of Fire” is nothing less than a hurri- 
cane. Since its unveiling at the Atlan- 
tic-Atco sales meet a month ago, the 
two-record set has passed the million- 
dollar mark, hit the #1 spot on the 
best seller lists and is still selling 
faster than most singles. 

The Cream, with Eric Clapton (gui- 
tar), Jack Bruce (Fender bass) and 
Ginger Baker (drums), is now having 
its first major single breakout from 
the nearly-a-year-old “Sunshine Of 
Love,” #15 this week and nearing the 
million-sales mark. 

They are also to be heard as per- 
formers in the Atco soundtrack album 
for “The Savage Seven,” with the main 
theme “Anyone for Tennis.”

3 Publishers Start Omega Equities Leisure-Timt Drive 


NEW YORK — The music business has 
a new company interested in making 
it a part of its expansion into the 
leisure-time field. 

Omega Equities is the name of the 
diversified company, and its initial 
holdings in the music field are three 
music publishing companies, the Rob- 
ert Mellin operation, Stasny Music 
and Vickie Music. Mellin is the only 
principal of the firms who stays-on, 
with Mellin having inked a 5-year 
deal. 

According to Warren Troob, attor- 
ney who represents Omega, further 
acquisitions by the company in the 
music field are forthcoming, including 
disk operations. He indicated that 


Omega did not plan any acquisitions 
in the wholesaling area. 

Soundtrack Emphasis 

Among the Mellin firms involved in 
the Omega transaction are Robert 
Mellin Music, Robert Music, Sherwin 
Music, Elmwin Music and Algonquin 
Music. Robert and Sherwin are 
ASCAP-eleared. It’s understood that 
Mellin will spend most of his time 
abroad, with specific intentions of sup- 
plying soundtrack music to the cata- 
logs, of which 200 (from foreign films) 
are already in the Mellin stable. Some 
of Mellin’s top copyrights include 
“Here in My Heart,” “Stranger on the 
Shore,” “I’m Yours” and “Prisoner of 


Livingston Exciting Capitol In Policy Rift 


HOLLYWOOD — In a surprise de- 
velopment, Alan Livingston announced 
his resignation as president and di- 
rector of Capitol Industries, Inc. last 
week. He also resigned his position 
as chairman of the board of Capitol 
Records, Inc., and as director and 
officerjDf other subsidiary companies. 

Glenn E. Wallichs, present board 
chairman and chief executive officer, 
was elected president of Capitol In- 
dustries, Inc., and in addition will 
assume Livingston’s responsibilities. 
Livingston stated that his decision 
was based on policy differences with 
the directors of the company. 

Wallichs announced that he and the 
board of directors of Capitol Indus- 
tries, Inc., accepted Livingston’s res- 
ignation with “extreme regret” and 
pointed out that Livingston has been 
an important contributor to the suc- 
cess of the company since he first 
joined Capitol Records in 1946. 

‘No Future Plans’ 

Livingston told Cash Box that he 
had “absolutely no future plans . . . 
this decision was made because I 
thought it was the right one to make 
under the circumstances ... I expect 
to be at my desk until a lot of pend- 
ing matters are cleaned up — perhaps 
for the next two or three months — 
and I’ll have a chance to think about 


what I want to do.” 

Wallichs, one of the founders of 
Capitol Records, principal operating- 
subsidiary of Capitol Industries, Inc., 
was elected chairman of the board of 
CRI to replace Livingston. Stanley 
Gortikov, president of Capitol Rec- 
ords, will continue in that capacity. 

2 New Board Members 
It was also announced that two new 
members have been added to the Cap- 
itol Industries board, Nolan Browning 
and Michael Nidorf. Browning has 
been a director of Capitol Records 
since his retirement as senior vice 
president of the Bank of America and

has been named to the board of di- 
rectors of Capitol Industries, Inc. and 
its Audio Devices, Inc., subsidiary. 
Glenn Wallichs, Capitol Industries 
Board Chairman and Chief Executive 
Officer viewed the move as “a signifi- 
cant step in our continuing efforts to 
strengthen and deepen management 
capabilities on all levels. Murray will 
take an active part in Audio Devices’ 
management policy.” (Murray retired

Catalano, Rosner & Diamond Music Co.Team 


NEW YORK — Three young tradesters 
have joined forces to form a new pro- 
duction-publishing operation, the CDR 
Company. The principals are Tom 
Catalano, former exec vp of the 
Crewe Group of Companies; Dave 
Rosner, formerly general professional 
manager of April-Blackwood Music; 
and strong Top 40 artist, Neil Dia- 
mond.

tacts in key areas,” CDR is already 
engaged in extensive talent auditions 
and has signed and recorded The Pen- 
ny Candy. 

Own Writer, Musician Staff 

CDR, based in New York, will have 
its own staff of exclusive writers and 
producers, and will shortly announce 
the signing of two major talents. As a

FCC Freezes AM'ers 

WASHINGTON — As of the close of 
business last .Friday (19), the Federal 
Communications Commission has tem- 
porarily ceased to accept new applica- 
tions for AM radio outlets. The freeze 
was put into effect so that the Com- 
mission can determine whether there 
exists a “significant national need” for 
new AM stations or major power in- 
creases in existing stations. 

The 400 applications for new sta- 
tions and major changes currently on 
file will be processed normally. 

A similar halt was ordered in 1962 
when there were a total of 3,871 AM 
stations. Currently, 4,300 AM outlets 
are in operation, along with 2,472 
FM’ers. 

Other reasons for the freeze are the 
commission’s concern over existing 
areas without primary, local radio 
service, and the possibility of reserv- 
ing frequency space for “developing 
areas.” 


gram, plans are currently underway 
for the construction of a new 15-trac-k 
recording studio in New York, staffed 
by house musicians. This will not only 
allow proven producers working un- 
der the CDR banner full creative free- 
dom, the trio said, but will also serve 
as a fertile atmosphere for the growth 
and development of new young talent. 

Trio’s Background 
Rosner, who helmed the April- 
Blackwood creative department in 
both publishing and independent pro- 
duction, was closely associated with 
the success of Chip Taylor, Van Mc- 
Coy, Margo Guryan, and Billy Vera. 
He also initiated the first independent

Columbia Convention 
This Week 

Columbia Records hosts the largest

both the company’s domestic and in- 
ternational staff will attend the con- 
vention, running from July 24-28, at 
the Americana and El San Juan ho- 
tels in Puerto Rico. The label will

The world-wide operation of Stasny 
music, now under Omega, includes 
such items as “Deed I Do,” “Angry,” 
“After All I’ve Been to You,” among 
dozens of other copyrights. Betty 
Stasny, widow of the company’s 
founder A. J. Stasny, wiil continue to 
own and operate two other firms, Top 
Notch Music (ASCAP) and Greater 
New York Music (BMI). 

Vickie Music was sold to Omega by 
Irv Micahnik. It boasts many hits re- 
corded by Del Shannon, including 
“Hats Off to Larry.” Vickie Ltd., an 
English affiliate of the set-up, is also 
a part of the deal. 

Omega, headed by Jerry M. Tenney, 
president, has non-music holdings in 
the men’s wear, real estate, hotels and 
oceanography. Its stock is traded 
over-the-counter. Tenney took charge 
of the company last Oct. and began a 
series of acquisition moves. 


Pocketdisc Vending Unit 
Formed Among Americom, 
Consolidated, Steiner 

HOLLYWOOD — A 3-way partnership 
has been established in the vending 
phase of the new Pocketdisc from 
Americom. The new company, pres- 
ently under the tag of Pocketdisc 
Vending, will be operated by Ameri- 
com, Consolidated (Distributors, the 
ABC-owned Seattle wholesaler under 
Lou Lavanthal, and the Steiner Manu- 
facturing Co., which is producing the 
unit that will vend Pocketdiscs. 

Pocketdisc is the 4", 33% singles 
concept by Americom that will receive 
an initial marketing test in the north- 
west, under the direction of Consoli- 
dated, starting Sept. 1. A number of 
labels, including ABC Records, have 
agreed to make their product available 
on Pocketdisc simultaneously with 
their regular 45 releases. 

The vending aspect of the Pocket- 
disc is considered a vital marketing 
function, according to Fred Hyman, 
president of Americom, Larry Kanega, 
Americom board member, and Lavan- 
thal. Steiner Manufacturing is produc- 
ing a simple, compact, non-electric 
unit that will dispense the Pocketdisc. 
Its concept is along the lines of the 
familiar stamp-vending machines pro- 
duced by the company. 


Berkman Bang-Shout GM 

NEW YORK— Harold Berkman has 
joined the Bang-Shout disk operation 
as general manager, as part of a 
general expansion of the company’s 
operations. He has just left a 5-year 
association with MGM Records, most 
recently operating in sales and pro- 
motion at the label’s headquarters in 
New York. 

An 11-year disk industry figure, 
Berkman has worked in many phases 
of the industry, including the distrib 
and manufacturer levels. At MGM, 
where he started as a fieldman, he 
was associated with the initial success 
of such acts as Hermin’s Hermits, the 
Animals, the Lovin’ Spoonful, Every 
Mother’s Son, Lainie Kazan, Lou 
Christie, Sam the Sham, among others. 
He also directed the debut promo 
tour of the Cowsills. 

Bang-Shout was established several 
years ago by the late Bert Berns. 
Berns died suddenly last January.

HOLLYWOOD — It’s a college of musi- 
cal knowledge as Liberty Records 
opens a sales meet this week (24) 
at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, empha- 
sising the training of personnel rather 
than new product releases. 

More than 200 salesmen, promo men, 
branch managers and corporate per- 
sonel from all the Liberty divisions, 
including United Artists Records, will 
hear Liberty Records president A1 
Bennett outline the goals of the con- 
vention. 

The theme of the convention is 
“Welcome to Liberty Records Dis- 
tributing College.” It’s considered the 
first time in the record industry that 
the emphasis of the national sales 
meeting has been placed so strongly 
on the training of field men rather 
than product presentation. 

During the first day of the conven- 
tion the corporate slide presentation 
will be shown and it will cover the 
structure and extent of the company, 
Liberty’s part in the industry and 
branch personnel’s role in the Liberty 
organization. 

All these subjects will be covered in 
less than 15 minutes and various un- 
usual audio and visual techniques will 
be utilized. 

Both two and three dimensional 
screens will reflect the images pro- 
jected by 12 slide projectors and a 
motion picture camera. 

Four track stereo sound will be 
utilized along with more than 15 in- 
dependent lighting systems. 

The corporate slide presentation was 
prepared by Dwight Espe of the Lib- 
erty advertising and merchandising- 
department. The photography was 
done by Ron Waller. 

July 27 will be devoted to United 
Artists Records and will consist of

NEW YORK — Bert Siegeison has been 
named director of professional activ- 
ities for Burlington Music Corporation 
(ASCAP) and Felsted Music Corpora- 
tion (BMI), twin publishing subsidi- 
aries of London Records. According to 
Mimi Trepel, who is general manager 
and a director of Burlington and Fel- 
sted, the move, coincides with a gen-

Pat Rolle is one of the promising 
new artists Wiedenmann said had 
signed to the label. He also indicated 
that there would be a strong push on 
newly-signed Betty Barnes. Her debut 
single is, “Destiny’s Child.” The as- 
semblage was also told that Kapp 
would release Shani Wallis’ next LP 
to coincide with the showing of the 
film version of the smash Broadway 
show, “Oliver!”, and that Kapp would

director, composer and arranger. He 
also said that there would be addi- 
tional important artist announcements 
upcoming within the next few weeks.

general manager W T ayne Bennett. 


Capitol Non-Slip 45s 

HOLLYWOOD— Capitol Records, will 
manufacture next month its seven- 
inch 45-rpm product with a non-slip 
feature. The general appearance of 
the record is relatively unchanged, 
with the exception of a ring of small 
serrations, or notches, molded into 
both sides of the record concentric 
with the label. When the records are 
stacked, these serrations interlock, one 
record to another, to keep the records 
from slipping. The serrations, being 
slight protrusions around the label 
area of the record, tend to grip the 
smooth surface of an adjacent non- 
serrated record, thereby lessening the 
possibility of slippage with non-ser- 
rated records when they are inter- 
mixed. 

Since they have been available in 
Europe for some years, it can be said 
that serrated records are not new. 
An optional standard for this type 
of record was set by the RIAA in 
1961. Yet Capitol is most likely for 
first domestic record manufacturer 
to produce 45-rpm product in con- 
formance with this optional standard. 
The decision to produce this type of 
record came about when RIAA had 
been advised of a situation, by the 
retail trade, wherein increasing num- 
bers of consumer complaints were 
being received regarding record slip- 
page on changers. 


the Burlington-Felsted group, with par- 
ticular emphasis on broadened repre- 
sentation in U.S. -originated song and 

score material. Heretofore, much of 
the two firms’ operations have been 

associated with foreign-based product. 
In line with the new effort, much 
stress will be placed on signing and 
developing young new writers. 

Siegeison brings a seasoned pub- 
lishing background to his new post. 
For nine years he served as profes- 
sional manager at Frank Music Cor- 
poration. With Frank, he was in 
charge of exploitation activities on 
the scores for many big Broadway 
hits, among them “How To Succeed In 
Business Without Really Trying,” 
“Music Man,” “The Unsinkable Molly 
Brown,” and the South African revue 
“Wait A Minim.” Siegeison also super- 
vised the recording of the soundtrack 
for “Ulysses,” and worked on the 
scores of such fine films as “David 
And Lisa” and “Lord Of The Flies.” 

Most recently he was president of 
Very Important Publications, associ- 
ated with the Greif-Garris manage- 
ment combine. During that time he 
developed the score of Peter Brooks’ 
film “Tell Me Lies,” with music by 
Richard Peaslee and Adrienne Mitchell. 
He also effected release of recordings 
of the VIP copyright “Summertime 
Love,” and the subsequent sale of 
this title to Yardley of London for 
its forthcoming radio and television 
advertising campaign. 

Siegelson’s career began in broad- 
casting as music programmer at radio 
station WVNJ, and later as producer 
of the Barry Gray Show on WMCA. 

In his present capacity, Siegeison 
will work closely with Miss Trepel 
and with Carolyn Kalett, assistant 
manager of Burlington and Felsted. 
He will focus particularly on building 
the two firms into a highly competi- 
tive position within the U.S. market, 
in terms of acquiring American songs 
for Burlington and Felsted here and 
for the Burlington-Palace group of 
companies throughout the world. He 
will seek and sign writing talent as 
well. 

The Burlington-Felsted catalogs 
now include the well-known perennial 
“Liechtensteiner Polka”; the score of 
the recent South African hit revue 
“Wait A Minim”; Johnnie Keating’s 
film score for “Robbery”; and several 
of the titles in the forthcoming Deram 
album “In Search Of The Lost Chord” 
by The Moody Blues.

THE MARKET & MUSIC 

Hughes Ends ABC Bid 

NEW YORK — Howard Hughes called 
off his drive to win control of the 
American Broadcasting Co. last week. 
Officially, the Hughes position was 
that his tender offer to buy shai'es at 
$74.25 each to gain a 43% interest in 
the company was dropped because of 
“inordinate opposition” from present 
ABC management. However, it was 
also suggested that the probability of 
Hughest’ public appearance before a 
Federal Communications Commission 
(FCC) hearing on the matter may 
have played a major role in his deci- 
sion. Hughes goes a long way to keep 
himself out of public view. ABC man- 
agement, headed by Leonard Golden- 
son, president, had started a legal 
drive to prevent the Hughes takeover. 
And interest on the part of the FCC 
stemmed from ABC’s broadcast net- 
work holdings. 

Meanwhile, ABC was seen as con- 
tinuing its negotiations with CIT 
Financial for a merger of the two 
companies. 

ABC, Transamerica Reports 

Meanwhile, ABC reported that earn- 
ings in the second quarter rose to a

D. Joseph, vice president of Gunga 
Din Productions and booked through

the services of a national promotion 
manager who will work in cooperation 
with MGM’s “Community Of Labels” 
to publicize and promote artists pro- 
duced by Gunga Din and managed by 
Reluctant Management. 

Wilson, 15 year industry vet as a 
producer has a string of successes to

Simon and Garfunkle, The Animals, 
The Mothers of Invention, Blues Pro- 
ject, Hugh Masakela, John Coltrane, 
Herbie Mann, The Clancy Brothers, 
and Eddie Harris. 

Both Wilson and Joseph, who also 
has a background in concert manage- 
ment film production, and artist man- 
agement, believe in the “total develop- 
ment of an artist.”

sonnel. Meet, announced by Frank 
Mancini, on the corporate staff of

division, will run from Aug. 7-11 in

Studios. 

‘Valuable Tool' 

Details for this debut promotional 
conclave were made known upon Man- 
cini’s return from the label’s Los An- 
geles base. Mancini stressed the fact 
that “this type of promotional meet- 
ing, the first of which we expect will 
be an annual occurrence, is a valuable 
tool in our over-all strengthened pro- 
motion operation. It will give our field 
promotion people a first hand oppor- 
tunity to continue to aid us in building 
the Decca, Coral and Brunswick pro- 
motion set-up as the best in the in- 
dustry, second to no one.” The com- 
pany’s promo staffers will check in to

Lisne light Experiments In Pop Uppeai 
Of Electronics Via New 6 LP Release 


CHICAGO — Limelight’s new product 
manager Robin McBride has started in 
motion an image transformation that 
promises to turn Mercury Records’ 
jazz subsidiary into a label oriented to- 
ward progressive, experimental sound 
with a pop market appeal. 

In its first release since McBride 
joined Limelight, the company has is- 
sued six albums featuring electronic 
music that will be promoted and mer- 
chandised toward acceptance as pop- 
ular sound rather than classical or 
avant-garde jazz material. All of the 
packages are being released in deluxe 
4-color double-fold jackets with com- 
prehensive notes on the artists and 
works. 

Turning the Corner 

Describing the label’s new trend Mc- 
Bride said: “everyone knows that elec- 
tronic music as well as other forms of 
experimental music is on the horizon 
of pop acceptance and we feel that this 


approach . . . will definitely turn the 
corner.” 

The six albums issued last week in- 
clude “Images Fantastique” and “Pa- 
norama Electronique” which contain 
an extensive collection of works by 
major experimental electronic compo- 
sers (Berio, Maderna, Ferrari, Xena- 
kis, Dufrene, Baronnet, Kagel, Eirnert, 
Henry, Ligeti, Coucourechliev and 
Pousseur); “Le Voyage” or the “Fan- 
tastic Journey From Death To Life” 
by Pierre Henry based on the Tibetian 
Book of the Dead; “Song of the Sec- 
ond Moon” including Tom Dissevelt 
and Kid Baltan’s “iSonic Variations”; 
the Grand Prix De Disque winning 
“Percussions of Strasbourg” and 
“Classical Rages of India” featuring 8 
different Eastern instruments. 

Backing up the initial Limelight re- 
lease is a comprehensive promotion- 
publicity-merchandising campaign on 
both consumer and trade levels. 


Warners Obtains Hendrix Rights In 
U. S. & Canada In Chalpin Settlement 


NEW YORK — An in-court settlement 
has been agreed upon by singer Jimi 
Hendrix, Warner Brothers Records 
and Ed Chalpin, who made a disk deal 
with Hendrix in October 1965. 

Chalpin and his firm, P.P.X. Enter- 
prises, a production and publishing 
company, signed a three-year contract 
with Hendrix in 1965 for him to pro- 
duce, play, sing and arrange exclu- 
sively for P.P.X. The United States 
and Canadian rights under that agree- 
ment have all been sold to Warner 
Brothers as part of the settlement and 
Chalpin will participate financially un- 
til 1972 in all of Hendrix’s past, pre- 
sent and future recording ventures. A 
settlement for areas outside the United 
States is still being negotiated. 

In the settlement agreement, Capi- 
tol’s current Jimi Hendrix-Curtis 


Knight album will be followed by a 
new Hendrix-Knight release, and a 
third Hendrix recording, this time 
with the Jimi Hendrix Experience on 
Capitol’s label. 

All other Jimi Hendrix Experience 
albums will be on Warner Brothers, 
under the terms of the settlement. 

Hendrix’s first album on Capitol 
was produced last summer by Chalpin 
and released last Dec. 

P.P.X. started suit last year when 
Warner Brothers released a Hendrix 
LP which Chalpin claimed was a vio- 
lation of Hendrix’s P.P.X. contract. 
Subsequent efforts to enjoin the Capi- 
tol-P.P.X. release were blocked by 
the Court of Appeals even before the 
case came to trial in the United States 
District Court, where the settlement 
was entered by Federal Judge Dudley 
Bonsai.

ords artist for nineteen years, will be

the first week of August. Material is 
presently being screened for the date 
by Larry Welk, v.p. and general man- 
ager^ of Wood’s label.

the Brel-McKuen ballad “If You Go 
Away.” 


ing of first assemblies from Univer- 
sal’s upcoming road show engagement 
motion picture “Sweet Charity,” 
which is now scheduled for an early 
’69 release. The “Sweet Charity” track 
album will be a Decca release and 
this advanced screening for the promo

tunity to discuss an all-out campaign

night preceding the first business 
meetings has been set aside for a 
welcoming cocktail party, dinner and

Swaney Upped To Prod. Mgr. 
On West Coast By Columbia 

NEW YORK — Columbia Records has 
promoted Dave Swaney to the newly 
created position of product manager 
of west coast operations, it has been 
announced by Bruce Lundvall, director 
of merchandising for the label. 

Swaney, in his new position, will 
be based in Hollywood, and will be 
responsible to Lundvall for maintain- 
ing liaison with all west coast Colum- 
bia A&R producers on all aspects of 
release preparation. He will specialize 
in the developement and exploitation 
of contemporary album product, and 
will assist in the coordination of cover 
art and liner notes. 

Swaney joined Columbia Records in 
1965 as manager of west coast press 
and public information with several 
years of newspaper and radio experi- 
ence. In 1966 he was transferred to the 
New York office as press representa- 
tive, where he publicized Columbia’s 
teen-oriented artists. 

Most recently Swaney served as 
associate manager of popular album 
merchandising. In this capacity he was 
actively involved in the development 
of Columbia Records’ highly success- 
ful “Rock Machine” promotion. 

Epic Ups Wekser To 
A&R Admin. Ass’t 

NEW YORK — Marty Wekser, former- 
ly manager, development, Epic A&R, 
has been promoted to the newly estab- 
lished position of administrative as- 
sistant, Epic A&R, according to an 
announcement by Dave Kapralik, Epic 
vice president, A&R. 

Wekser, who joined Epic in June, 
1967, after a stint as music director of 
WWRL, N. Y., will be responsible to 
Kapralik for recommending record 
masters for purchase, supervising 
Epic’s independent productions, and 
supervising Epic A&R administrative 
activities. 

Applegate, Ruff 
Join Dot A&R Staff 

HOLLYWOOD— Dick Peirce, Dot Rec- 
ords vice president and general man- 
ager, announced the addition of two 
staff producers, Bobby Applegate and 
Ray Ruff. The pair will headquarter at 
Dot’s Hollywood home office, reporting 
dii'ectly to Peirce. 

Ruff, a former member of the Check- 
mates, entered production in 1964 and 
came up with the Top Ten “Last Kiss” 
platter by J. Frank Wilson. Most re- 
cently he was involved in personal 
management, handling the recently 
revived English group, Them. 

Applegate, Dot’s Southern Cali- 
fornia promotion rep for the last year, 
showed much prowess in the area of 
talent acquisition, hence the move-up. 
His musical insight has been an asset 
to the label’s increasing artists roster.

This may be the most versatile group we've ever presented on MGM Records. 
And that takes in a lot of territory. 

Kangaroo is more. Maybe even too much. Too much talent for one group. 
Too many sounds to put on one single. 

So we’re not releasing one. 

We’re releasing three. Simultaneously. 

Three separate singles. Three distinctly different 
grooves. A pocketful of hits, all destined for greatness. 

Precedent-shattering? Perhaps. 

Precedent-setting? We'll see. 

In the meantime, we advise you to get a jump on the charts. 

Order Kangaroo today. In triplicate.

Debut Album Coming In August 


To listen to the Nazz is to understand immediately what rock and roll is all about. There 
is an exhilaration and joyfulness to what they are doing which expresses completely 
the attitude that rock has always sought to express. They play with such finesse 
and solidity, it amazes me that anything can be so simple yet complex 
at one and the same time. 

The amazingly diverse abilities of the Nazz are represented on this album. Their 
hard rock is the hardest of the hard. But the ability of these four young men to create 
truly original and honest ballads, and adorn them with the most melodic and 
imaginative harmonies since the hey day of the Mamas and Papas will come as a 
surprise to anyone who thinks that a band can only play 
it one way or the other. 

Todd, Sfewkey, Carson, and Thom have created a debut album which immediately 
places them within the top echelons of the rock hierarchy. They have captured the 
youthfulness and innocence which has been so lacking from the rock of the past 
year. They have revitalized the music with their total energy and lack of pretension. 
And, before they are through, I think they will tear your head apart, 
and put it back together again.

PETER, PAUL & MARY 


FOREST HILLS, N.Y.— Leonard Rus- 
kin’s 1968 music festival at the Forest 
Hills Tennis Stadium, plagued by the 
threat of bad weather for the first 
two shows, finally saw the sun as 
Peter, Paul and Mary pulled in the 
largest crowd of the season. The 
veteran Warner Bros. -7 Arts folk- 
oriented trio made themselves at home 
in the large, open air stadium and 
turned in a relaxed, professional per- 
formance. 

Peter Yarrow, Paul Stookey and 
Mary Travers disprove the theory that 
the whole cannot be greater than the 
sum of its parts. Their renditions of 
such favorites as “Leavin’ On A Jet 
Plane,” “ASoalin,” “If I Had A Ham- 
mer” and “If I Had My Way,” still 
pack the power they displayed when 
they were first released. Along with 
three old Dylan favorites, “The Times 
They Are A Changin’,” “Don’t Think 


Twice, It’s Alright,” and “Blowing In 
The Wind,” they performed their re- 
cent Dylan-composed kit, “Too Much 
Of Nothin’.” 

Peter took a solo turn to conduct the 
audience in an enjoyable rendition of 
“Stewball,” and Paul performed a new 
song, “Love City,” and his own “Give 
A Damn,” number. 

With an introduction of “This is a 
children’s song. If I write a song 
about pot, I’ll tell you,” the group 
sang “Puff, The Magic Dragon,” a 
highlight of the show. 

Many other numbers, including their 
Top 40 “I Dig Rock & Roll Music” 
were performed during the course of 
their two hour presentation, with not 
a clinker in the lot. Not many groups 
can sustain audience interest for a 
complete show, but then, not many 
groups are Peter, Paul and Mary. 


MATT MONRO 


LOS ANGELES — The holiday week 
end began a little early for a few folks 
who were fortunate enough to be on 
hand for the very extra-ordinary tal- 
ents of Mat Monro. The unique sound 
that Monro is able to capture on his 
records was present throughout his 
performance — the clear sound that he 
so articulately expresses. His English 
wit demonstrated an ease and polish 
with such nicety that the audience 
soon began to feel like one big happy 
family. His repertoire, though a little 
dated, was typical of the Mat Monro 
sound. Beginning with “Love Is A 
Many Splendored Thing,” and “In The 
Still Of The Night,” Monro effected 
a certain romantic air throughout the 
audience which prepared them for a 
delightful, quixotic number, “The Mu- 
sic Played,” his latest single for Capi- 
tol Records, a beautiful tune done 
beautifully. To get his audience back 
to a quicker pace, Mat sang “You’re 
Nobody Till Somebody Loves You,” 
with all the excitement of a show- 
stopper tune. 


As the audience was there to see and 
hear the great Monro do some of his 
past hits, they were just about yelling 
at this point for him to do “Walk 
Away,” one of his first big tunes a few 
years back which, was received with 
great enthusiasm. Interjecting a few 
more standards, “Younger Than 
Springtime,” Autumn Of My Years,” 
Monro sang another one of his past 
successes, a particularly good song, 
“My Kind Of Girl.” But his perform- 
ance could not have been complete 
without his special musical stylization 
of “Born Free.” Ending his repertoire 
with that lovely ballad from West 
Side Story, “Maria,” Monro deserved 
the gustative applause which he re- 
ceived. 

All in all a very entertaining and 
enjoyable evening was spent with 
Monro. Again, be reminded of his 
latest single, and maybe his best hit 
yet, “The Music Plays,” released by 
Capitol. Monro is set for three weeks 
at the Westside Room. 


NAZZ Single Is 
SGC's Disk Bow 

NEW YORK— SGC, the new label 
formed by Columbia-Screen Gems and 
Atco, has released its first single — 
“Open My Eyes” and “Hello It’s Me” 
by the NAZZ. 

Both tunes were composed, ar- 
ranged and produced by the young 
Philadelphians and will also be a part 
of their debut LP, NAZZ, to be re- 
leased on August 1st. 

A heavy single promo has been 
created to launch the new group. A 
deluxe 4-color single sleeve is fea- 
tured and the new label is taking 
advantage of the growing use of TV 
promotional films by announcing the 
immediate availability of a color film 
featuring NAZZ and “Open My Eyes.” 
The film was designed for local pro- 
grammers as well as for overseas mar- 
kets, many of which are simultaneous- 
ly releasing the single. An unusual 
dividend in the label’s single promo- 
tion is the appearance this week of 
a layout in 16 Magazine, largest of 
the teen magazines. “16” has reprinted 
lyrics to both sides of the new NAZZ 
single with photographs of the group 
members. 



R&R LEAVE — Singer Herb Fame of 
the Peaches & Herb duo looks (and is) 
just about ready for release from the 
hospital where he has been recuperat- 
ing from an accidental wound inflicted 
by a revolver while on a recent road 
tour. The Date artist is now taking a 
three week rest at his home in Wash- 
ington, D.C. prior to rejoining his 
songmate for a recording session set 
for mid-August. With him is head 
nurse Mrs. Johnson. 


PETE SEEGER 
LEN CHANDLER 


NEW YORK — A friend of ours once 
called Pete Seeger a Pied Piper, and 
though he has never attempted to 
spirit away rats, children or anyone 
else, he has managed to charm count- 
less audiences into singing happily 
along with him, sometimes for the 
greater part of concert. His Schaefer 
Music Festival concert, which took 
place on Friday evening, July 12, at 
the Wollman Memorial Skating Rink 
in Central Park, often had the atmos- 
phere of a hootenany. The house was 
packed to capacity, and there were 
many people sitting on the grassy 
slopes outside the Rink. Seeger, sing- 
ing and alternately accompanying 


himself on banjor and twelve string 
guitar, was in excellent form through- * 
out his entire program, which included 
a wide variety of folk and contempor- 
ary material. 

Len Chandler, a contemporary sing- JT 
er, guitarist and songwriter, traded 
songs with Seeger, and sang duets with ►. 
him. Chandler’s own compositions went ■, 
over well, and the audience enjoyed 
singing along with him. 

Whether New York, as a whole, can 
justifiably be described as “a summer 
festival,” is a matter of some contro- w 
versy, but the Schaefer concerts un- ’ 
doubtedly helps the cause along. 


PHIL FLOWERS 


ARTHUR, NYC — Making his first 
New YoiTc appearance, Washington- 
based Phil Flowers made an impres- 
sive debut at Arthur last week. Fol- 
lowing his first set at the discotheque 
bandstand, he was immediately offered 
an extended stay that will keep him 
over through the middle of the next 
week. 

Looking like a brawny Otis Redding, 
Flowers thrives on a booming voice 
that often takes on twinges of the late 
artist, but he shows an equal proficien- 
cy in material from other Memphis 
greats. 

Though most of his songs are recent 
and new r&b sellers from the Sam & 
Dave, Arthur Conley and Detroit rep- 
ertories, he is a notable writer in his 
own right. In fact, highlight of his act 
is a demonstration of “The Alligator,” 


a dance introduced in Flowers’ latest 
Dot single release. Introduced during 
an appearance in D.C., the Alligator 
has been growing in popularity there 
and made inroads at many of the so- 
ciety functions at which Flowers has 
entertained. 

Basically a cross between boot camp 
calisthenics and an epileptic fit, the 
step is probably the first really new 
thing to happen in discothequery in 
several years. Contrary to the custom 
of adding a gesture or foot movement 
and a new name, this workout involves 
performing in the prone position. As 
done by two members of Flowers’ 
combo, the Alligator comes off great, , 
and if it leaves the dance floor empty 
for the next number through exhaus- 
tion, at least the boards are cleaner. 


PINK FLOYD 
FLEETWOOD MAC 


THE SCENE, N. Y.— By building up 
an audience that is more interested in 
music than “star power,” Steve Paul’s 
Scene is consistently able to provide 
new groups with a proper showcase. 
Latest groups to benefit, while not 
"new,” (both are major attractions in 
England ) , were both unfamiliar to 
New York. 

Tower’s Pink Floyd (whose second 
LP, “A Saucerful Of Secrets” has just 
been released) is one of England’s top 
psychedelic outfits and were respon- 
sible for introducing light shows to 
that isle. For their Scene appearance, 
they dispensed with the light and laid 
heavy on the music. While most elec- 
tronic groups tend to be boring and 
annoying, the Floyd have somehow 
managed to capture the essence of psy- 
chedelia which was introduced by Jef- 
ferson Airplane. As evidenced by their 
choice of titles, their music has an in- 
teresting quality of outer spaceness 
which is successfully diluted by a cer- 
tain down-to-earth visual performance. 
Among the tunes were two instru- 
mentals, “Interstellar Overdrive” and 
“A Saucerful Of Secrets,” and four 
vocals including “Set The Controls 


Fillmore East Reopens 

NEW YORK — Bill Graham’s Fillmore 
East, which had originally planned to 
stay closed for the summer, is now 
opening sporadically for top attrac- 
tions. Jefferson Airplane did four 
shows this past weekend, and Big 
Brother & the Holding Co., Ten Years 
After and the Staple Singers will be 
the attractions for four shows Aug. 2 
and 3. 

In an unusual departure from its 
l-ock format, the Fillmore will present 


For The Heart Of The Sun,” “Let 
There Be More Light” and “Flaming.” 
In all, the six songs took over an hour, 
but it only seemed like a few minutes. 
The group is currently on a national 
tour. 

Fleetwood Mac has had several sue- ; 
cessful chart singles and an LP (just 
released here on Epic) in England, and 
is the last remaining authentic white 
blues group there. The quartet showed ; 
moments of greatness, but on the 
whole is not as exciting as a few Amer- 
ican acts (John Hammond, for one) I 
who also deal in pure blues. An inter- 
esting aspect of the group is that if 
they feel only three instruments are 
required toput over a song properly,, 
the fourth member will sit the song 
out. A good practice some American | 
groups should adopt. The two great 
numbers were “Lazy Polka Blues” and 
“Strange Blues,” which featured a 
“What’d I Say” riff. Both were done 
by the entire group. Two trio numbers 
were also effective, “Sea Blues” and 
“Looking For Somebody.” Group is 
way above average, and will especially 
appeal to blues fans. 


folk-singer Joan Baez in two concerts, 
Aug. 9 and 10. , 

Lack of proper air-conditioning was 
the reason for the summer closing, but 
several of the Fillmore’s stagehands, 
NYU engineering students, designed 
an economical plan to restore the an- 
cient unit to full effectiveness. 

Graham has retained Michael Gold- 
stein’s p.r. firm to handle both the 
Fillmore East and the original Fill- 
more in San Francisco. Later club re- 
cently moved to larger quarters.

Liberty Rushes 3 LP's 

LOS ANGELES — A special rush re- 
lease on albums by the Johnny Mann 
Singers, the Ventures, and Trombones 
Unlimited has been announced by Bud 
Dain, general manager of Liberty 
Records. 

Included among the twelve tunes 
on Johnny Mann’s twenty -fifth Liber- 
ty LP, “This Guy’s In Love With 
You — The Look Of Love,” are songs 
by such noted contemporary writers 
as Jim Webb, Burt Bacharach, and 
Paul Simon. 

The Ventures’ new album, “The 
Horse,” features that tune, plus such 
melodies as “Jumpin’ Jack Flash,” 
“Grazing In The Grass,” “Tip Toe 
Thru The Tulips,” and “Here Comes 
The Judge.” 

Trombones Unlimited are represent- 
ed on their latest Liberty package, 
“Grazing In The Grass,” a selection of 
R&B ditties. 


Rasputin LP's Move 

NEW YORK — Supporting their pro- 
duct with personal promotion, Tom 
Wilson and Mark Joseph, heads of 
Rasputin Productions, are seeing their 
efforts resulting in heavy air play and 
strong sales action for their first 
three albums, by the Bagatelle, the 
111 Wind and Fraternity of Man, re- 
leased on ABC Records. 

The Bagatelle have just completed 
an appearance in a major motion pic- 
ture, “Parachute to Paradise” pro- 
duced by Floyd L. Peterson Produc- 
tions. The group appears in the film 
and sings the title song as well as 
much of the score. They recently 
completed their fourth return engage- 
ment at New York City’s Electric 
Circus. 

The 111 Wind, scoring heavily in the 
Boston area where they make frequent 
appearances at the Boston Tea Party, 
are embarking on a cross-country tour 
for their album, “Flashes”. A single 
“In My Dark World” is being taken 
from the album for release. 

The Fraternity of Man album, 
which many consider an underground 
set, is surprisingly being programmed 
heavily on both AM & FM stations. 
“Wispy Paisley Skies” and “Don’t 
Bogart Me,” are being pulled for 
single release. The group has just 
finished an engagement at San Fran- 
cisco’s Avalon Ballroom. 

Wilson and Joseph were recently 
the subjects of a great amount of 
publicity on Swedish radio and tele- 
vision and in periodicals when they 
signed “The Perhaps”, voted by Swed- 
ish Radio as the number one group in 
Scandinavia. 

Unable to travel to Sweden for a 
show based upon the group and them- 
selves, Wilson and Joseph brought 
The Perhaps to the United States for 
several weeks where Tom Wilson is re- 
cording their first album. 

Mark Joseph, who heads Reluctant 
Management, the company which 
manages all of the Wilson-Joseph 
acts, notes that with release of an 
album by each group, intensive atten- 
tion is given to visual attraction of 
the acts with the album debut. Cover 
art, photography and general appear- 
ance of each group is of vital import- 
ance to the Wilson-Joseph organiza- 
tion. 


mediately following the Convention. 
Members of the Epic sales department 
divided into four teams and traveled 
to the various distributorships to hold 
individual sales meetings for each 
distributor’s sales personnel. These 
meetings included the same product 
presentation that was given at the 
convention, which was attended only 
by the distributors and their sales and 
promotion managers. 

Epic has received heavy response 
for the new albums by Donovan, Sly 
and The Family Stone, Tammy Wyn- 
ette, David Houston and The Treme- 
loes. Among the albums by new artists 
introduced at the convention, those by 
West, a pop group from the San 
Francisco Bay area, and by vocalist 
Anna Black are receiving particularly 
good response. Orders on the new 
Crossroads product reflect the highest 
individual quantities achieved since 
the line was first introduced a little 
less than two years ago. 




CASSETTE DISPLAY and dispenser 
in a new design is being offered to 
dealers by North American Philips 
Co. for the complete line of Norelco 
compact cassettes. As shown, the unit 
accommodates all three cassettes (the 
C-60, C-90 and C-120) in what asst vp 
Wybo Semmelink calls “a compact, 
convenient means to display and sell” 
the packages. It is designed to be 
pilfer-proof, and features color coord- 
inated labels, containers and packag- 
ing for each of the three lines while 
prominently stating that the cassettes 
all come with a lifetime guarantee. 
Complete display measures 13%"

Windmills Turn At Skye 

NEW YORK — Well-known club and 
session drummer Grady Tate, signed 
to Skye Records for a drum album, 
wound up doing a vocal date instead 
as the result of his work on some 
demos of songs he had written with 
bassist Ben Tucker. The title song of 
his forthcoming album, “The Wind- 
mills Of Your Mind,” the Michel 
Legrand tune from “The Thomas 
Crown Affair,” came out so well that 
both Skye and UA Music are launch- 
ing a heavy push on the tune, which 
has been released as a single.

to composers and lyricists in New 
York City since 1960, will begin a 
series of similar sessions in Los An- 
geles in early October directed by 
Lehman Engel, leading Broadway con- 
ductor composer. The Workshop is 
designed to stimulate proven writers 
and to develop new talent for the 
musical theatre. 

In October, Engel will make the 
first of a series of visits to Los An- 
geles to conduct the Coast classes. 
Each visit will last for four days, 



SKIP LAYNE SIGNS IN as vice pres- 
ident in charge of the newly formed

ing wing of Mus-Art. With him at the 
appointment are Mus-Ai-t execs Bob 
Vincent (left) and Charlie Trenda. 
Layne comes to the outfit with experi- 
ence as disk jockey, trade columnist 
and worker with Bobby Robinson’s 
labels and Ernie Freeman’s Ser Pro- 
ductions as recording supervisor. 


Workshop On Coast 

during which two sessions will be held 
each day. Classes for qualifying pro- 
fessional writers will be held in the 
afternoon, and those for new talent 
in the evenings. All writers, lyricists 
and/or composers who wish to join the 
Workshop must first submit material. 
This can be on tape, recording or in 
manuscript form showing some indi- 
cation of potential for writing for the 
musical theatre. Engel will make the 
final selection of participants in the 
classes. Material of all aspiring writ- 
ers must be submitted no later than 
August 23 to Herbert Eiseman, BMI, 
9720 Wilshire Blvd., Suite 802, Beverly 
Hills, California. As in the case with 
the New York classes, no charge of 
any sort will be made to persons at- 
tending the sessions. 

Engel has conducted more than 150 
Broadway musicals. He also is the 
author of “The American Musical 
Theatre,” the recently published vol- 
ume devoted to analyses of some of 
the most successful musicals of the 
20th century. He was a Fellow at the 
Juilliard Graduate School of Music, 
and has studied privately with famed 
composer, Roger Sessions. Among the 
many Broadway musicals Engel has

national, received the books, which 
feature full color glossy repros of the 
initial release, lithographed on light 
cardboard and bound with the tradi- 
tional, albeit smaller, plastic spiral 
in a pocket sized package. 

According to Laurie national sales

tor reaction to the catalog, which in- 
cludes product by Richie Havens,

Waters and Pandit Prannath, has been 
unexpectedly fast and unanimously

A series of five and ten-minute radio 
shows, entitled “The Hit Heard ‘Round 
The World,” will begin airing across 
the U.S. the first week in August, ac- 
cording to Herbert Moss, president of 
of the New York-based Gotham Re- 
cording Corp., which is recording the 
broadcasts. Presented in behalf of the 
United States Recruiting Aids Div- 
ision of the U.S. Army, the sez-ies is 
hosted by Freddie Robbins, who, from 
New Yoi’k, conducts telephone inter- 
views with foi’eign deejays. The voices 
of Robbins and his guest are taped 
separately, and then the tapes are 
combined, a procedure which elimi- 
nates the distortion often accompany- 
ing overseas broadcasts. Top tunes 
from foreign lands are played on the 
shows. At present, about 1,200 outlets 
have signed for “The Hit Heard 
’Round The World,” and it is antici- 
pated that approximately 2,000 sta- 
tions will carry the program. Gotham 
Recording is associated with educa- 
tional, public seiwice, and pop music 
broadcasts, and TV and radio com- 
mercial jingles.

ience, and job preference. Expi’essing 
a diversity of interests, the high

Ad” announcements l’equest employ- 
ment in a variety of areas from stock 
clei’k and gai'dening woi’k to clerical

tered the news awards competition

WWUN with a “Certificate of Ex- 
cellence” award for public service

“The reaction to this moving com- 
mentary has been just incredible,” 
said Alan Mink, Mercury product 
manager. “Nearly everyone who has 
heard the record has been unanimous 
in its praise.”

Shadows Of Knight- 
To Super K Prod. 

NEW YORK — The Shadows of Knight, 
who hit Top 10 with “Gloria” a while 
back, have been signed by Jerry 
Kasenetz & Jeff Katz to their Super K

Philips Singles Action 

CHICAGO — Philips Records is releas- 
ing the current French Top Ten hit by 
Aphrodite’s Child, a Greek group, 
“Rain and Tears,” an English-lan- 
guage tune which is expected to reach 
the half million mark in sales there. 

A recent Philips master purchase, 
“Going Back To Miami” by the Spirit 
of St. Louis, is beginning to receive 
strong reaction in several major mar- 
kets, including Miami and, of course, 
St. Louis. 


writes, “Another social commentary, 
attempting to counteract public indif- 
ference to community problems. The 
word ‘Damn’ has previously been re- 
stricted on the air, but in this context 
it is not only acceptable but most 
meaningful in a constructive sense.” 

“Give A Damn” was recorded espe- 
cially for Mayor John V. Lindsay and 
his Urban Coalition in conjunction 
with the “Give A Damn” campaign 
prepared as a public service by the 
Young & Rubicam advertising agency. 
The summer action program is aimed 
at focusing attention on ghetto prob- 
lems. 

The tune, written by the group’s 
production team of Stu iScharf and 
Bob Dorough was released to radio 
stations in a special jacket outlining 
the goals of the New York program. 

Now, with release on a commercial 
basis throughout the country, pro- 
ceeds from royalties will go to the 
Urban Coalition which is a national 
organization aimed at uniting busi- 
ness, labor and community groups in 
a joint effort to deal with the prob- 
lems of poverty and urban decay. 


Wednesday's Child 
Into Outside Work 

HOLLYWOOD — Wednesday’s Child 
Productions, which has confined itself 
to producing its own artists, is now 
taking on outside work. A&R director 
Jackie Mills has already completed a 
single with Dallas Cowboys football 
star Lance Rentzel, “Lookin’ Like 
Somethin’ That Ain’t,” for Columbia; 
four sides with Slim Gaillard for 
Epic: four sides with Ernie Lucas, two 
of which, with “Love Thief” as the 
‘A’ side, were released last week by 
Epic; and four sides with the Ashes 
for Vault. 

The increase in production work has 
left Mills low on good material, and 
he is anxious to hear from music pub- 
lishers with material for any of 
WCP’s acts. 



NEWTON PLACE — or Larry’s Lane, is the appelation of this new street in 
Islip, Long Island. Named after ABC Records’ head Larry Newton, the avenue 
was “christened” at an informal ceremony which was held with Newton (sec- 
ond from left), Islip’s town councilman Louis J. Pallombi (left); Abe Shames, 
builder of Cardinal Industrial Park in nearby Hauppage; and Frank Guarino 
(right) of the Long Island Assoc. Newton Place runs adjacent to building #2 
of the True Sound complex which will be devoted to warehousing and shipping 
of ABC product, and to the True Bound pressing plant. 



‘SPACE AVAILABLE’ might have 
been an appropriate Hilton invitation 
to appear with the special displays ar- 
ranged for in a special tie-in display 
promotion on MGM’s soundtrack LP 
from “2001: A Space Odyssey.” The 
animated showpieces featuring the 
movie album are being placed in lob- 
bies of many hotels in the Hilton 
chain. Above is the first one installed, 
on exhibit at the New York Hilton 
hotel at 54th St. and the Ave. of the 
Americas. Reference is made in the 
set-up to a Hilton Hotel on a space 
station. 

Impulse Signs 
Alice Coltrane 

NEW YORK — Impulse Records has 
signed Alice Coltrane, widow of the 
late famed jazz musician John Col- 
trane, to an exclusive recording con- 
tract. The announcement was made by 
Bob Thiele, director of A&R for ABC 
Records, parent of the jazz label. 

Mrs. Coltrane, noted pianist and 
harpist, will record her own original 
material as well as compositions left 
by her late husband. In addition, Im- 
pulse Records will acquire tapes made 
by John Coltrane which were in the 
possession of his wife. These tapes will 
be issued on the Impulse label. 

Negotiations for Mrs. Coltrane’s 
recording contract were made through 
Coltrane Recording Corp. and all re- 
cordings released by Impulse made by 
John Coltrane and Alice Coltrane will 
carry a special Coltrane Recording 
Corp. logo. 

Bob Thiele will work closely with 
Mrs. Coltrane in determining rep- 
ertoire and packaging. Thiele worked 
with Coltrane for five years preceding 
the jazz man’s untimely death a year 
ago, and both Thiele and Alice Col- 
trane will aim at perpetuating the 
music and the goals of John Coltrane. 
One of John Coltrane’s favorite proj- 
ects was the furtherance of music 
through the discovery of new young 
musicians and this ambition will be 
furthered primarily under the guid- 
ance of Mrs. Coltrane. Her own record- 
ings will feature Jimmy Garrison, 
Rashied Ali, and Pharaoh Sanders, all 
of whom were paid of John Coltrane’s 
last recording group. 

Bob Thiele states “the discovery of 
the John Coltrane tapes held by Mrs. 
Coltrane, as well as several unreleased 
tapes in the Impulse catalog, will pro- 
vide a continuous flow of new product 
by the late artist for the next three 
or four years.”

NEW YORK 

They're Starting 

Retirement fits well on Jack Mills, 
the music publisher who left the scene 
three years ago when he sold Mills 
Music to — you guessed it! — a conglom- 
erate. Nearing 80, Jack dropped by the 
offices of his son, Stan Mills, to wish 
him well on his new music publishing 
ventures, September Music and Gala- 
had Music. Early in his career, Jack 
was a songwriter, but, as he put it, 
he felt a little embarrassed about ask- 
ing his contact men to push his own 
songs. Nevertheless,, one of those 
tunes, “I Bought the Ring & I’ll 
Change Your Name to Mine,” proved 
a modest success. This tune is going 
to try for a comeback via a recording, 
as part of an LP, by comedian George 
Burns for the Buddah label. 

As for his son’s new career, Jack 
noted that Stan’s comfortable offices 
were a far cry from the offices he had 
when he went out to make his mark 
in the world of music publishing. It

"Chitty Bang Bang 11 

Strange dear but true dear — two 
academy award “losers” in two suc- 
cessive years became enormous hits 
just a few months after the April event. 
Last summer it was Dionne War- 
wick’s “Alfie” that climbed to the CB 
top 15. And this year it’s “The Look of 
Love” that’s looking up among the top 
five. 

If the trend continues songsmiths 
and publishers will soon be campaign- 
ing to lose the Oscar. 

“Love” was our personal choice for 
this year though “Talk to the Ani- 
mals” was the odds-on favorite. Our 
“score” ballot would have gone to 
Leslie Bricusse’s “Dr. Dolittle,” also 
an also ran. 

The “Dolittle” tunes received mixed 
notices. One local critic suggesting 
they were “derivative,” tho’ he never 
named the source. We still find it 
among the most compelling and orig- 
inal film scores we’re heard in years. 

Chances are that Unart Music’s 
“Chitty Chitty Bang Bang” score 
will be compared to “Mary Poppins.” 

It makes sense since Richard and 
Bob Sherman are responsible for both. 
Somethow if one borrows from him- 
self, the odor seems less odious. (Try 
humming “Night and Day” and “I’ve 
Got You Under My Skin,” for exam- 
ple. Nobody ever accused Cole Porter 
of being a copycat.) 

“Chitty” tells the story of a magi- 


ln The Middle 

was suggested to Jack that in this 
prosperous era of wall-to-wall and air- 
conditioning, today’s youth probably 
starts a business career somewhere “in 
the middle instead of at the bottom.” 
Jack seemed delighted at Stan’s an- 
nouncement that he has just placed the 
first song to be recorded for his new 
operation. 

Tom & Dick Smothers, the brothers, 
will be making their first personal ap- 
pearance tour in more than two years 
this August, accompanied by comic 
and presidential hopeful (?) Pat Paul- 
sen. Billed “The Smothers Brothers 
Comedy Hour or Two,” the bill will 
include dates at Madison Square Gar- 
den (21), Festival Field, Newport (23), 
the Ohio State Fair and a string of 
showplaces in the west. . . . The Vanil- 
la Fudge guest this Thursday’s “Today 
Show” with a one-hour discussion of 
rock music. They’ll also tape a Merv 
Griffin spot for airing next week and 
play dates at the Central Park Festi- 
val (24) and the Hampton Beach Ca- 
sino (27) . . . Phil Flowers and “The 
Alligator” made their NYC debut at a 
special booking in Arthur (16-21). The 
dance has made its way north from 
Washington, where the prone-position 
step was introduced . . . Hugo Monte- 
negro has been signed to do the musi- 
cal score for the new Frank Sinatra 
picture “The Lady in Cement.” . . . The

saved from a junkman’s furnace and 
resurrected by inventor Caraetacus 
Potts (Dick Van Dyke), his two kids

tious (Sally Ann Howes). It also tells 
of the most evil man in the world, 
Baron Bomburst (Gert Froebe) who 
has come all the way from Vulgaria 
to steal Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. 
The yarn is magical — the songs match. 

Film, incidentally, will be premier- 
ing in December with 40 hard ticket 
houses showing it simultaneously in 
the states. 

Morris Diamond, international co- 
ordinator of special projects for U.A., 
is responsible for the recording activ- 
ity of the 13 tune score. Recently re- 
turned from Europe, Diamond met 
with U.A. reps, licensees and a num- 
ber of recording artists and produc- 
ers. Several foreign language albums 
are in the works and several more 
are being cut here. The New Christy 
Minstrels (who, you may remember, 
had the definitive version of “Chim 
Chim Cheree”) hve already recorded 
a “score” LP for Columbia (planned 
for fall release) and some jazz LP’s 
are being taped (including one by 
Willie Restum on Jubilee and another 
by Eddie Higgins on Ranwood). In 
addition fourteen singles are ah’eady 
set — one already released. It’s un- 
doubtedly Unart’s academy award 


five-girl pop act, the Complex’ telecast 
appearance will coincide with the 
now-in-preparation push from Athena 
Records for the first single from them.

siderable bit of attention at Philips 
via the team’s LP. . . . Musicor’s The

titled “Hushabye Mountain.” The 
Tony Bennett record is getting con- 
siderable air play in town. Diamond 
says his goal “is not to see how many 
records we can accumulate from the 
‘Chitty’ score (tho’ the more the mer- 
rier) but to aim for chart artists and 
chart records. And then end up with 
bullets.” 

“Bang Bang” has enough ammuni- 
tion, we feel, to do just that.

TEMPTATIONS (Gordy 7074) 

Please Return Your Love to Me (2:21) [Jobete, BMI-Whitfield, Strong, Neely] 
Working with the new falsetto lead that came into the fore with “I Can’t 
Believe I’m Losing You,” the Temptations return for another chart run 
in a slow vein that carries new shades of power in the group’s familiar 
style. Still backed by the solid Motown rhythm section, the side and 
performance come off stunningly for a very big pop and blues response. 
Flip: “How Can I Forget” (2:00) [Jobete, BMI-Whitfield, Strong] 


Picks oi the Week 




APHRODITE’S CHILD (Philips 40549) 

Rain & Tears (2:55) [MRC, BMI-Papathanasiov, Bergman] 

Second outing in America for this group features the sound that should 
break Aphrodite’s Child wide open with teen listeners. Excellent low-key 
arrangements weave a murky spell behind a lead singer whose voice is 
different enough to command immediate attention and a song which 
carries a haunting melody. All elements point to a smash sales reception. 
Flip: “Don’t Try To Catch a River" (3:42) [Same credits.] 


SAM & DAVE (Atlantic 2540) 

Can’t You Find Another Way (2:23) [East, Pronto, BM 1-Banks, Jackson] 

Look to Sam & Dave for a solid bit of soul work on their new effort that 
has the “Soul Men” working up a lather on some not-quite-up-tempo rhythm 
material. Track features their regular high-gear vocal fireworks and arrange- 
ments that are highlighted by some standout guitar touches and bright brass 
flashes. Team has a sales winner. Flip: “Still is the Night” (2:38) [East, 
Pronto, BMI-Floyd, Jones] 


THE WHO (Decca 32362) 

Magic Bus (3:10) [Fabulous, BMI-Townshend] 

Sporting a rhythmic reminiscence of “Bo Didd ley” in a manner all their 
own the Who spring their newest surprise on the Stateside audience. Caught 
in the fifties-rock movement now sweeping England, the group continues its 
campaign to re-open US ears to the sound. Strong follower for “Call Me 
Lightning” and one that could bolster the trend here. Flip: “Someone’s Com- 
ing” (2:26) [New Action, ASCAP-Entwhistle] Sixties style pop with better 
than “B” side possibilities. 


FREDDIE SCOTT (Shout 233) 

(You) Got What I Need (2:40) [Double Diamond, Downstairs BMI-Gamble, 
Huff] 

Solid styling and a sensational voice make Freddie Scott a standout 
performer; and his latest release couples his talent with a song that is 
likely to bring him the biggest side yet in his r&b career. Arrangements 
and production put a high gloss on this sparking ballad with a cushioned 
beat to stir listener and dancer response. Flip: “Powerful Love” (2:07) 
[Toles, Wassel, BMI-Scott, Shaw] 


SHORT KUTS (Pepper 439) 

Hold It Baby (2:15) [East, Pronto, BMI-Rice] 

Coming off a regional noise-maker that has given the Short Kuts a 
reputation, the team cooks up a side here that should break them nation- 
ally with an explosive following that will be attracted by the stunning 
dance power of “Hold It Baby.” Pop track steeped in blues that should 
blow wide open on pop and progressive shows. Flip: “Broke Down Piece 
of Man” (2:45) [East, Pronto, BMI-Cropper, Shamwell] 


ED AMES (RCA Victor 9589) 

All My Love’s Laughter (2:32) [Canopy, ASCAP-Webb] 

Mysterious love imagery of Jim Webb is presented in a hymn-like melodic 
piece that brings Ed Ames back in the running with his newest single. Boom- 
ing vocal is nicely set with an arrangement that has strong bass lines with 
light touches behind key phrases. Especially powerful outing that is bound 
to click with teen and adult format shows. Flip: “I’ll Stay Lonely” (2:22) 
[Morrison, ASCAP-Green, Jones] 


LULU (Epic 10367) 

Morning Dew (2:50) [Nina, BMI-Rose, Dobson] 

Most of the post-To Sir With Love material from Lulu has tended toward 
the folky field, with an up-tempo movement. In her latest, “Morning Dew,” 
Lulu tones down the speed and intensifies her emotional impact in a highly 
commercial rendering of the often cut track. Atmospheric arrangement and 
her own performance have spurred release of this song from her recent LP. 
Single should happen. Flip: “You & I” (2:28) [Lu-Mar, BMI-London] 


MICKEY MURRAY & CLARENCE MURRAY (SSS Int’l 743) 

How Do You Think I Can Live with Somebody (2:15) [Crazy Cajun, BMI- 
Thomas, Mcree, Thomasl 

Fever paced side features the power of a vocal pairing with Mickey 
“Shout Bamalama” Murray & his brother Clarence. Twosome are fired up by 
a blazing instrumental backdrop that will bring home the discotheque ex- 
posure and teen sales on a brisk outing bound to click in blues and pop 
markets. Flip: “The Pig & the Pussycat” (2:00) [Tobi-Ann, BMI-Radcliffe, 
Scott] 


OTIS CLAY (Cotillion 44001) 

She’s About a Mover (2-59) [Crazy Cajun, BMI-Sahm] 

A winner some time ago for the Sir Douglas Quintet, this fine dance track 
is given a revamping to gather action from r&b markets as well as pop spots. 
Terrific dance beat is matched by a phenomenal vocal by Otis Clay that will 
kick off the deejay receptions, and listeners will turn the lid into a sales 
monster in short order. Flip: “You Don’t Miss Your Water” (2:43) [East, BMI- 
Bell] 


PAUL MAURIAT (Philips 40550) 

San Francisco (Wear Some Flowers in Your Hair) (3:10) [Wingate, Honest 
John, ASCAP-Phillips] 

Splendid orchestral touch of Paul Mauriat revives the shimmering aura 
of last year’s monster for Scott McKenzie. Delightful melodic romp that is 
half-fragile melody and strings, half rhythmic throb. Still the commander 
of audiences from teen to easy listening throngs, Mauriat is bound to attract 
attention with this outing. Flip: “I Waited for You” (2:15) [Emarcy, ASCAP- 
Kesslair, Chaumelle] Less teen appeal on this attractive caper. 


NOEL HARRISON (Reprise 0758) 

The Windmills Of Your Mind (2:20) [United Artists, ASCAP-Bergman, Berg- 
man, Legrand] 

Featured in the recently released “Thomas Crown Affair” film, this per- 
formance by Noel Harrison could be the bright one that will bring him back 
into the upper reaches of the best seller lists. Sparking melodic track 
with an outstanding lyric carrying contemporary impact. Prospective break- 
out showings could turn up in both top 40 and middle-of-the-road areas. 
Flip: “Leitch on the Beach” (2:26) [Dorval, ASCAP-Harrison] 


JAY & THE TECHNIQUES (Smash 2171) 

Singles Game (2:42) [Saturday, BMI-Brown, Bloodworth] 

New bag for Jay & the Techniques, who have flourished in a dance 
rhythm and now slow down the pace for a teen type romancer. Easy beat and 
attractive team performance give the side a somewhat summery blues 
sound that is a solid track for pop programming. Should climb well into 
the best seller lists, heating up the team’s power again. Flip: “Baby How 
Easy Your Heart Forgets Me" (2:25) [Legacy, BMI-Marchand, Barkan] More 
belting drive on this side could bring both ends into the winner’s spotlight. 


THE JAMES BOYS (Phil-L.A. of Soul 316) 

The Mule (2:42) [Dandelion, James Boy, BMI-James] 

Back-to-back instrumental power brings this new composition by Jesse 
“The Horse” James in for a staggering reception. Sequel to the current 
Cliff Nobles smash, the track has a power all its own to add fresh fuel to 
the building soul-instrumental movement. Expect to see a string of break- 
outs behind this mighty side. Flip: “The Horse” (2:25) [Same credits.] 


THE PLATTERS (Musicor 1322) 

Hard To Get A Thing Called Love (2:36) [Kama Sutra, BMI-Andreoli, 
Poncia, Jr.] 

Exceptional lyric is given a stunning sendoff on this exciting side from 
the Platters. Group's satin-soul sound drifts along in an ambling-tempo 
that will be well received with blues dancers and could find a big break 
into the pop sales scene tearing up the charts. Expect heavy r&b action 
with a building pop show to develop for this one. Flip: “Why” (3:24) 
[Sweet River, BMI-Turner] 


GENE SIMMONS (Mala 12012) 

Lila (Don’t Worry) (2:33) [Press, BMI-Simmons] 

Pop ballad with a taste of Honey that flits by as the beat picks up on this 
enticing track from Gene Simmons. Interesting arrangements and a fine 
lyric give the side better than average prospects for middle-of-the-road play 
as well as strong teen market possibilities. Deserves more than one careful 
listen to make the difference. Flip: “I'm Just a Loser” (2:12) [Press, BMI- 
James] 


EYDIE GORME (Calendar 1004) 

This Girl’s in Love with You (4:00) [Blue Seas, Jac, ASCAP-Bacharach, 
David] 

Nicely presented ladies’ answer performance to the Herb Alpert smash, is 
a glittering lid that will see plenty of activity at easy listening spots and 
more than a modicum of play at MOR stations. Soft arrangement with a 
cute non-vocal duet highlighting this powerhouse material on its second 
time 'round. Flip: “It’s You Again” (2:53) [Damila, ASCAP-Marks] Selection 
from the Broadway musical “Golden Rainbow.” 


ENOCH LIGHT & THE LIGHT BRIGADE (Project 3 1339) 

Lullaby from “Rosemary's Baby (3:04) [Famous, ASCAP-Komeda] 

Stunning arrangements and a powerful atmospheric handling of the 
eerie theme from “Rosemary’s Baby” should bring Enoch Light and his 
orchestra a large chunk of the adult easy listening and middle-of-the-road 
favor. Bristling and lush all in one, this performance is one of the most 
enjoyable of the non-pop renderings yet released. [No flip information.]

Newcomer Picks 




THE NAZZ (SGC 001) 

Open My Eyes (2:48) [Screen Gems/Columbia, BMI-Rundgren] 

Fireworks should accompany the debut single from SGC Records. Initial 
release is a powerhouse pop side with some wicked guitar work to put the 
icing on a sensational rock song and a group sound that will tear its way 
into the teen pop polls. High stepping rhythmics are polished off by produc- 
tion touches that will bring in national sales explosions. Flip: “Hello It’s 
Me” (4:00) [Same credits.] 


DEEP PURPLE (Tetragrammaton 1503) 

Hush (4:11) [Lowery, BMI-South] 

Phychedelicized re-version of the time-back Billy Joe Royal song comes 
in for some phenomenal work from the Deep Purple, a new English group 
that can be expected to shatter underground and pop listening fans. In- 
strumental work and tailoring of the rock song all point to sheer force in 
a strong bid to crack the best seller lists. Should succeed in a grand 
manner. Flip: “One More Rainy Day” (3:15) [Ganja, ASCAP-Evans, Lord]

DEREK (Bang 558) 

Cinnamon (2:35) [Pamco, BMI-Tobin, Cymbal] 

Thumping rhythm side with an outstanding dance appeal and some very 
fine vocal work from Derek sets up a teen side that should enjoy a heavy 
teen response. Basically a “bubble-gum” side, the song is enhanced by an 
arrangement with interesting flairs provided by a trace of harmonica and 
some fine folk-rock guitar work. Flip: [No info available.] 

KANGAROO (MGM 13960 & 13961) - 

Daydream Stallion (3:56) [Ananga Ranga/lan, BMI-Keith] 

Such a Long Long Time (2:15) [Ananga Ranga/Apothecary, BMI-Hall] 

Debuting with a highly promoted LP and three singles, the Kangaroo offers 
a solid sound for multi-format teen programming along either straight pop 
or progressive rock lines. Team is instrumentally exciting in an up-tempo 
session on “Such a Long Long Time” and has a stunning female vocal from 
Barbara Keith in the “Daydream Stallion” track that has slower pace and 
appeal that relies on solid performance rather than frantic drive for its ef- 
fect. Third release is yet to be received here, but has a lot to live up to 
with these already previewed. 

MIRAGE (Page One 21006) 

Mystery Lady (2:30) [Aim, BMI-Stein, Fay] 

Forsaking fancy figures, the Mirage gets down to the business of rock on 
a teen tune that is basically just a good, clean dance track with a pretty 
enough vocal to slice through the haze of trends and gimmickry and head 
straight for the heart of the pop record fan. Very fine group showing with the 
teen-power to become a monster. Flip: “Chicago Cottage” (2:42) [Dick James, 
BMI-Duncan, Flynes, Oates, Hynes] Delightful coupler. 

SHIRLEY HORN (ABC 11108) 

For Love of Ivy (2:54) [Ampco, ASCAP-Jones, Russell] 

Enticing ballad from the soundtrack of Sidney Poitier’s new movie pro- 
vides a solid vehicle for Shirley Horne to break into best seller ranks on 
both pop and soft spin levels. Exceptional song gets a smoky vocal with 
enough rhythmic support to snag dance attention without being obtrusive 
on the listener level. Big breaking prospect. Flip: "Have You Tried to Forget” 
(2:25) [Yvonne, BMI-Pate] 

EQUALS (RCA Victor 9590) 

Baby, Come Back (2:37) [Picadilly, BMI-Grant] 

A lot of the lively sound that broke the Foundations in America goes be- 
hind this newly released side that is currently holding the No. 1 spot on 
Britain’s best seller lists. Find dance beat and a good group performance 
sets the stage for a highly promising run at the lists here. Could climb that 
sales mountain. Flip: “Hold Me Closer” (2:32) [Saxon, BMI-Grant, Gordon] 

DES O’CONNOR (Diamond 247) 

I Pretend (2:48) [E. H. Morris, ASCAP-Reed, Mason] 

Newest Englishman to come along in the Humperdinck pop-adult vein, 
Des O’Connor blooms here straight from a top five showing in Britain with 
a pretty ballad from the Reed-Mason catalog. All the elements of success 
are built-in for a break in the middle-of-the-road to younger market, and 
good music exposure is an added prospect. Likely to catch sales fire. Flip: 
“Thinking of You" (2:14) [E. H. Morris, ASCAP-O’Connor, Dodd] 

DON PARTRIDGE (Capitol 2242) 

Blue Eyes (2:28) [Andover, ASCAP-Kerr, Maitland] 

Wild side that has had a run on the British best seller lists comes on 
strong from the off-the-wall kazoo opening on through its close. Hearty beat 
by a booming bass and a crazy-enough-to-happen vocal by Don Partridge set 
up a side that is so weird that it could just explode. Something is there 
though, and it makes this side just about irresistible. Flip: “I’ve Got 
Something for You” (2:38) [Andover, ASCAP-Partridge]

BOBBY WOMACK (Minit 32048) 

Fly Me To The Moon (2:45) [Almanac,

turns in a pulsating, catchy R&B 
version. Could hit dual market. Flip: 
“Take Me” (2:40) [W. Roker, BMI- 
Ervin] 

JUNIOR WELLS (Vanguard 35069) 
Stop Breakin Down (2:35) [St. Louis, 
BMI-Williams] Currently hitting on 
the R&B market with “You’re Tuff 
Enough,” this older side from Junior 
Wells could give him double chart ex- 
posure. Strong soul blues piece. Flip:

Phillips, Parker Jr.) 


LINDA CARR (Ranwood 815) 

Didn’t Want To Have To Do It (3:00)

commentary, attempting to counteract public indifference to 
community problems. The word “damn” has previously been 
restricted on the air, but in this context it is not only acceptable 
but most meaningful in a constructive sense.

Hotsky] 


BARBARA & BRENDA (Dynamo 
120 ) 

Don’t Wait Up For Me Mama (2:00) 
[Catalogue, Gaskins, BMI-Gaskins, 
Gaskins] Back from an r&b noise- 
maker, Barbara & Brenda have an 
even more powerful dance track here 
that should make sizeable waves in 
the blues market with pop spillover a 
possibility. Flip: “Who Put Out The 
Rumor” (2:32) [Catalogue, Cee & Eye, 
BMI-Foxx, Gaskins] 


TIMMY WILLIS (Veep 1288)

[Unart/Ardis, BMI-Briggs, Valvano] 


DELEGATES (Pacific Jazz 88120) 
Pigmy Part 1 (2:27) [Har Bock, BMI-

KAREN CHANDLER (Dot 17127) 

A Change of Mind (2:24) [Perro, Oce- 
lot, BMI-Torst] Attractive vocal set 
with a lively rhythmic accompani- 
ment that should find a reception with 
middle-of-the-road stations and many 
easy listening shows. Flip: “Let Go!” 
(2:43) [Duchess, BMI-Gimbel, Powell, 
DdMoraes] Pleasantly treated “Can- 
to de Ossanha.” 


EDDIE WILSON (BackBeat 596) 
Shing-a-ling Stroll (2:20) [Don, Dar- 
cell, BMI-Wilson] Texas spawns yet 
another new dance innovation with 
this potent beat item featuring a 
driving vocal and instrumental work- 
out that could plow up the r&b charts 
with pop breakout a possibility. Flip: 
“Don’t Kick the Teenager Around” 
(2:00) [Same credits.] 


GORDON ALEXANDER (Columbia 
44594) 

One Real Spins Free (2:20) [Giggle, 
BMI-Alexander] Off-beat vocal ma- 
terial with a generally moving instru- 
mental beat and lyrics that could

KEITH (Mercury 72824) 

I Can’t Go Wrong (3:03) [Act Three/

Renzetti] 

NITTY GRITTY DIRT BAND 

(Liberty 56054) 

Collegiana (2:37) [Mills, ASCAP- 
McHugh, Fields] From out of the 
Roaring Twenties comes this oldie, 
given new life by the Nitty Gritty Dirt 
Band. Jug band sound fits the tune 
like a glove and could be the surprise 
smash of the year. Listen close and 
often. Flip: “These Days” (2:59) 

[Nina, BMI-Browne] 


JAN & DEAN (Warner Bros. -7 Arts 
7219) 

I Know My Mind (3:15) [Screen 
Gems-Columbia, BMI-Berry, Christ- 
ian] Change-of-pace outing for Jan & 
Dean, a tender light-beat piece could 
put them back on the charts. Lyrics 
deserve extra-special attention. Flip: 
“Laurel And Hardy” (2:44) [Same 
credits.] 

SYDNA TAYLOR (Pepper 440) 
Takin’ Up Space (2:35) [II Gatto, 
Crestmoor, BMI-Rhodes] Pretty folk 
side with a fine vocal performance to 
gain favor with pop and even c&w 
spinners. Right in the groove between 
both sounds to come up strong as a 
change-of-pace track in both markets. 
Flip: “That’s How Long” (2:35) 

[Cedarwood, BMI-Craft] 

STEMMONS EXPRESS (Karma 201) 
Love Power (2:17) [Sam Coplin, BMI- 
??] Working in a big bag like the

a strong bet to find plenty of pop 
stations going with the record. Fine 
dance beat, good performance and a 
shot at breakout showings. Flip: “Wo- 
mand, Love Thief, (2:40 [Same 
credits.] 

BILL SODEN (Epic 10363) 

Soakin’ Up Sun (2:24) [Blackwood, 
BMI-Soden] Bill Soden’s last outing- 
caught some good regional play, and 
his switch to Epic could put him in 
the national picture. Easy-going rock 
effort has a cute jug band feel and 
is worthy of good Top 40 play. Flip: 
‘^Old Time Movies” (2:43) [Same 
credits.]

I’m Back To Stay (2:30) [Dynatone, 
BMI-Brown, Ballard, Lavong, Cordell] 
Hank Ballard, absent from the hit 
scene for quite some time, makes his 
comeback bid with this pulsating, 
highly danceable outing which is 
vaguely autobiographical. Good juke 
box & disko item. Flip: “Come On 
Wit’ It” (2:40) [Golo, BMI-Brown, 
Ballard, Hobgood] 


MIRROR’S IMAGE 

(Catamount 01000) 

No Lovin’ Man (2:39) [San Donna, 
BMDScafuro, Dittamo] Every once in 
a while a disc like this one, straight, 
hard-driving and not too complex, 
sneaks in and becomes a monster. If 
the time is right, the Mirror’s Image 
could find a hit on their hands. Flip: 
“If You Are Nowhere Now” (2:32) 
[Same credits.] Label is at 2865 
Kennedy Blvd., Jersey City, N.J. 

BENNY LATIMORE (Dade 2017 1 
The Power And The Glory (3:05) 
[Screen Gems-Columbia, BMI-Pomus] 
A poignant soul stand, this deck could 
develop into a stone smash with a 
minimum of R&B or pop play. Builds 
slowly with much feeling. Flip: “Love 
Don’t Love Me” (2:04) [Sherlyn, BMI- 
Alaimo, Reid] 


LOVE SOCIETY (Scepter 12223) 

Do You Wanna Dance (2:37) [Clokus, 
BMI-Freeman] A hit for Bobby Free- 
man and later for the Beach Boys, 
tune could make another run on the 
charts as a result of this quite sub- 
dued soft-rock reading by the Love 
Society. Intriguing performance. Flip: 
“Without You” (2:17) [Flomar/Sodos, 
BMI-Steffen, Dellger] 


BOBBY WHITLOCK (Hip 8001) 
Raspberry Rug (2:13) [Sky Hill, BMI- 
Russell, Washburn] Bright, bouncy 
melodic piece about the history of a 
Japanese raspberry rug could score 
nicely for Bobby Whitlock. Watch for 
Top 40 reaction. Flip: “And I Love 
You” (2:04) [East, BMI-Nix]

7220) 

I’m The Only One (3:05) [Bright Tunes,

BMI-Force, Kahan] 


LEE RAYMOND (World Pacific 
77894) 

Ever On My Mind (2:10) [Jerden,

ture accents this sparkling Top 40 
outing from Lee Raymond. Has more 
than a fair chance to make it. Flip: 
“Would You Like” (2:12) [Beechwood, 
BMI-Alexander, Gunderson] 


SUGAR SHOPPE (Capitol 2233) 
Skip-A-Long Sam (3:00) [Donovan, 
BMI-Leitch] The Sugar Shoppe could 
turn the chart trick with this de- 
lightful piece of nonsense from the 
talented pen of Donovan. Plenty of 
Top 40 potential in the grooves here. 
Flip: “Let The Truth Come Out” 
(2:57) [Morley, ASCAP-Mann] 


JEAN WELLS (Calla 152) 

Ease Away A Little Bit At A Time

BANNED (Fontana 1621) 

Goodbye Groovv, Goodbve (2:42) 
[Geld-Udell, ASCAP-Geld, Udell]

blend and lyrical power to catch a 
good deal of pop and much under- 
ground play. Could be the side to break 
this strong group. Flip: “A Blanket 
of Sound” (2:34) [Same credits.] 


CRUME BROTHERS (Chess 2047) 
You Were Meant for Me (2:47) 
[Dilflow, Chevis, BMI-Crume, Crume] 
Extremely fine soul side with an “It 
Should Have Been Me” lyric and some 
terrific vocal work to make this ballad 
a prospect for r&b breakout. Flip: 
“Time Has Made a Change in Me” 
(2:25) [Same pubs, BMI-Crune]

2110 ) 

Wha’cha Gonna Do For Me Now

rock ditty from the Bubble Gum 
Machine could give a big lift to 
summer sales. Flip: “The Love Of A 
Woman” (256) [Same credits.] 


WILLIE HIGHTOWER (Capitol 2226) 
It’s A Miracle (2:49) [Soul Sound/Too 
Late, BMI-Robinson, Hightower] Stri- 
kingly different outing by Willie High- 
tower, a talk /sing sermon on the 
power of love, could see heavy action 
on both soul and pop stations. Keep 
tabs on it. Flip: “Nobody But You” 
(2:15) [Sunflower, BMI-Clark] 


TOMPKINS PARK SINGERS (Tomp- 
kins Park 1000) 

Did You Give The World Some Love 
Today Babe? (2:36) [Norman-Leon- 
ard, BMI-Martin] Pretty easy listen- 
ing and middle-of-the-road selection 
with a smooth melody line and ap- 
petizing chorus vocal. Message is ob- 
vious and should win many spotlights.

THE REUNION (Mr. G 816) 

People Getting Younger (2:20) 
[Whiteway, ASCAP-Brabec] Very 
fine material and an ear-catching in- 
strumental showing from the Reunion 
could pave the way for this off-beat 
side. Underground sound with pop 
possibilities. Flip: “Good Morning 

Sunshine” (2:35) [Same credits.] 


MATTEO (Ford 151) 

Clown Town (2:10) [Spiral, ASCAP- 
Shelley] Pop noise-maker for Donna 
Lee last year, “Clown Town” returns 
in a new guise. Performed with a 
booming Italian easy listening style, 
the song is sure to delight adult pro- 
grammers. Flip: “Up There The 

Stars” (2:20) [United Artists, AS- ' 
CAP-DiMinno, Neff] 


JACK McDUFF (Cadet 5614) 

Let My People Go (3:01) [Growl, 
BMI-McDuff, Evans] Lots of good 
music outlets should go with this 
solid organ workout by Jack McDuff, 
on the oldie. Also should do well with 
jazz-slanted juke box locations. Flip: 
“Ain’t It” (3:15) [Growl, BMI- 
Evans] 


SECOND TIME (Tower 434) 

Listen To The Music (2:47) [Screen 
Gems-Columbia, BMI-Mann, Weil] D. 
J. play has caused this cut to be pulled 
from the “Wild In The Streets” 
soundtrack LP. Lighthearted, ener-, 
getic rock stand could step out. Flip: 
[No info available.] 


JOHNNY NASH (JAD 207) 

Hold Me Tight (2:50) [J. Nash, AS- 
CAP-Nash] Usually smooth-voiced 
chanter goes the high-pitched route to 
put over this Nashville-sounding rock 
ditty. Traces of a pop Sam Cooke 
sound. Good commercial entry could 
make it with Top 40’s. Flip: “Cupid” 
(3:29) [Kags, BMI-Cooke] 


DANNY & JERRY (Ronn 24) 

I Can’t See Nobody (3:18) [Nemper- 
or, BMI-R. & B. Gibb] Good version 
of this Bee Gees oldie could bring 
some action to Danny & Jerry. One to 
watch. Flip: “Mo’reen” (2:33) [Day 
Wyn, BMI-Lindsay, Melcher] Don’t 
overlook this thumping rock effort iff 
the search for a hit. Also has a strong 
sound. 


REGGIE SOUL (Capri 103)

tee’s, BMI-Scott, Soul] Reggie Soul 
and the Soul Swingers put forth a 
potent R&B entry with this some-*,' 
times-soft, sometimes-hard, but al- 
ways good mover. Could establish the 
new Capri label, which headquarters j 
at 4057 S. Prairie Ave., Chicago. Flip: 
“Mighty Good Loving” (2:28) [Same, 
credits.] 


KENNY FOX (RCA 9590) 

I’m Crazy ’Bout You Baby (3:06)' " 
[Eden, BMI-Kelly Burton] This lilt- i 
ing romancer, slightly blues oriented, 
could find strong teen-market accept- 
ance. Smooth & warm performance 
by Kenny Fox helps sell it. Flip’: ||

marketing reorganization. 

The label has appointed Alan Silva

p.r. outfit, they will work to establish 
the label’s identity as, in the words 
of president Bernard Stollman, being 
“closely akin to the Library of Con- 
gress.” The ESP catalog, which in- 
cludes the Fugs, the N.Y. Electric 
String Ensemble, Albert Ayler, Sun 
Ra and Pearls Before Swine is “prob- 
ably the finest documentation of the 
new music available, and it is, at this 
point, our intention to bring this to 
the public’s attention,” said Stollman. 

The new merchandising team will 
also concentrate on educating the 
label’s distributors and dealers to 
the potential inherent in the firm’s 
avante-garde catalog. 

ESP will hold back releases sched- 
uled for the Summer until the reor- 
ganization has been completed and 
the hoped-for feedback has been re- 
ceived from distributors.

Do” from the Happenings. New ac- 
tion has also begun there for Freddie 
Hughes’ Wand side “Send My Baby 
Back to Me.” . . . Jakes Holmes is 
supplementing his Tower recording 
activities with writing of material 
with Bob Gaudio for the new Four 
Seasons LP. Holmes and Gaudio 
wrote the team’s most recent hit, 
“Saturday’s Father.” . . . Paul Tan- 
nen has an amazing diversity in his 
production work. Not only is he the 
man behind Don Rickies’ comedy LP 
“Hello Dummy,” but he produced 
“Paul Simon Interpreted” with the 
Sound Symposium for Dot . . . Pete 
Bennett predicting top ten sales for 
the new Bobby Vinton single, “Half- 
way to Paradise.” . . . Lana Cantrell 
guests on “The Dating Game” (27) 
during her current stand at the Sands 
in Las Vegas. Meanwhile, her Afghan 
hound Christian will be moonlighting 
as a performer in a U.A. movie, 
“Where It’s At,” being' filmed at 
Caesar’s Palace . . . Bob Crewe cur- 
rently writing lyrics for ten melodies 
composed by Charlie Foxx for a now 
in production Dynovoice LP . . . 
United Artists is now reservicing the 
Easybeats’ LP “Friday on My Mind” 
as a result of major underground 
programming that broke in Detroit 
and has now become nationwide. 

Let’s not confuse the two, but the 
New York ELECTRIC STRING En- 
semble rounded out last Friday’s 


Philadelphia Festival bill. Their elec- 
tronic-baroque played with Jackie > 
Wilson, Judy Garland and Count 
Basie. On the other hand, the New 
York ROCK & ROLL Ensemble is in 
Gotham for shows with Peter Martin 
and “The New Yorkers” as well as 
p.a.’s at Trude Heller’s for a week 
(from 29) and the Bitter End begin- 
ning Aug. 7 . . . Diamond Records 
has just taken over U.S. rights to a • 
master by Des O’Connor. The top- 
side “I Pretend” was #3 in England 
last week . . . And, to the “Soul Fes- 
tival ’68” at Randall’s Island (27), 
add Aesop’s Fables to the roster that 
features Joe Tex, “Moms” Mabley, 
Percy Sledge, Jerry Butler, Pigmeat 
Markham, Peaches & Herb, Bobby 
Taylor & the Vancouvers, the Del- 
phonics and the Intruders. . . . Marty 
Goldrod out to the west coast for 
promo and good will visits. During 
his ten days away, he is likely to be 
hearing a good deal about Spanky & 
Our Gang’s “Give a Damn,” originally 
released only for public service spots, 
but now picking up a consumer de- 
mand that should force it into regu- 
lar issue . . . King Curtis has just 
aligned a 12-day concert tour with 
Four Tops & Dick Clark to hit college 
campuses (campi?( in the east this 
fall. He’s also to do a one-nighter 
with Bill Cosby at the comic’s re- ■ 
quest . . . New controversy over the 
suggestion to discontinue the insti- 
tutional “There She Is Miss America” 
theme has led its composer Bernie 
Wayne to undertake a national tour 
promoting his own recording of the 
standard-of-a-sort. He is petitioning 
via the sales/exposure route, to have ( 
the song retained in the national 
pageant over the current wishy-washy 
attitude now being expressed by the 
people governing the show.

ED AMES SINGS ‘APOLOGIZE’ — RCA 
LPM/LSP 4028 

Ed Ames had a hit with the title tune of 
this album, and the set itself is already begin- 
ning to show chart action. Along with such 
hits as “Sunny” (one of the best present 
here), “Honey,” “Love Is Blue,” and “After 
All The Loves Of My Life” (from “Mac- 
Arthur Park”), the chanter offers a vocal 
version of the “Elvira Madigan” theme and 
a pretty ballad, “The Color Of Snow.” Expect 
heavy airplay and sales. 


DO YOU KNOW THE WAY TO SAN JOSE 
— Julius Wechter & Baja Marimba Band — 
A&M SP 4150 

Always a potent chart threat, Wechter and 
the Baja Marimba Band come on stronger 
than ever with this new collection. Mood and 
pace vary nicely with the material as the 
group goes from the oldie “Yes Sir, That’s 
My Baby” (a recent single noisemaker) 
through “Sunrise, Sunset” (from “Fiddler”) 
to an excellent rendition of the recent Spanky 
& Our Gang hit, “Sunday Mornin’.” Strong 
hits and good originals round out the set, 
which should see hefty action. 


COUNTRY JOE & THE FISH TOGETHER 
— Vanguard VSD 79277 

Country Joe and the Fish fire away at war, 
the suburbs, and racism in an LP which fuses 
message and music. Of particular note is Joe 
McDonald’s “The Harlem Song,” an acerbic 
comment on preconceived attitudes held by 
too many whites about Negroes. “Bright Sub- 
urban Mr. & Mrs. Clean Machine” is a put- 
down of the trivia surrounding anticeptic 
lives. The Fish are engaged, to say the least, 
and their rock messages offered here should 
find many sympathetic ears. 


VILLA RIDES — Original Motion Picture 
Soundtrack — Dot DLP 25870 

Maurice Jarre, who wrote the scores for 
“Dr. Zhivago” and “Lawrence Of Arabia,” 
two of the most successful tracks in recent 
times, is also responsible for the music to this 
Yul Brynner, Robert Mitchum film from Par- 
amount. The recent popularity of westerns 
and their soundtracks should also help sales. 
As expected, the music carries a strong Mexi- 
can flavor. Airplay could help make this one 
of the big items of the year. 



SOttfcft 0: 


SHE’S A HEARTBREAKER— Gene Pitney— 
Musicor MS 3164 

With his singles career back on the up- 
swing as a result of the title tune, Gene 
Pitney should enhance his already strong al- 
bum reputation with this new, highly diversi- 
fied collection of tunes. “Count The Days,” 
the recent Charlie & Inez Foxx hit, “Yours 
Until Tomorrow,” the current Vivian Reed 
success, Pitney’s own English hit, “Some- 
where In The Country,” and Tony Bruno’s 
“Small Town, Bring Down” add a strong 
dimension to the artist. Good bet for chart 
status. 


THE SOUND OF BOOTS— Boots Randolph— 
Monument SLP 18099 

Sax man Boots Randolph has enjoyed great 
success with his previous LP’s and this new 
offering promises to be no exception. Ran- 
dolph’s lush, sweet stylings permeate such 
pop goodies as “Gentle On My Mind,” “Jack- 
son,” “By The Time I Get To Phoenix,” and 
“Green Green Grass Of Home.” Look for fast 
chart action on this package. 


WEST MEETS EAST— ALBUM 2— Yehudi 
Menuhin & Ravi Shankar — Angel S 36026 
World famous violinist Yehudi Menuhin and 
the equally renowned sitarist Ravi Shankar 
perform together for the second time on rec- 
ords on this superb album. Menuhin and Shan- 
kar are featured in “Raga Piloo,” which was 
composed by Shankar. The two artists ex- 
change musical ideas of extreme complexity 
and elaborateness. “Dhun” and “Raga Anand'a 
Bhairava” complete the disk. Devotees of seri- 
ous music should find this set enchanting. 


SOFTLY — Sandpipers — A&M SP 4147 
After their initial singles successes, the 
Sandpipers have settled down to turning out 
a string of pleasing albums. Their vocals, 
more than just background music, have found 
a wide market. Diversity is the key as the 
trio tackles Donovan’s “Jeniffer Juniper,” 
“Love Is Blue,” “All My Loving,” a Beatles 
oldie, and some foreign material, “Quando 
MTnnamoro” and “Ojos De Espana.” Could 
be a strong package for the group. 


Pop Best Bets 



CLASS OF ’68— Floyd Cramer— RCA LSP/ 
LPM 4025 

Although a strong country artist, pianist 
Floyd Cramer has also enjoyed considerable 
success in the pop field, and this collection of 
mostly 1968 hits should enhance his reputa- 
tion and sales record. With a lushly orked 
background, Cramer works his way through 
such mood pieces as “Never My Love,” “Love 
Is Blue,” “Mission: Impossible Theme,” and 
“A Man And A Woman.” A strong candidate 
for heavy good-music airtime and resultant 
chart success. 


MONUMENTAL POP HITS— Various Art- 
ists — Monument SLP 18096 

Here’s a strong package of singles from 
Monument, some of which were top chart 
items. Among the tunes are “Oh Pretty Wom- 
an,” Roy Orbison, “Mexico,” Bob Moore, “My 
Special Prayer,” Joe Simon, and “Down At 
Papa Joe’s,” the Dixie Bells, all of which were 
chart riders. This set of “oldies” could score 
solid sales success. 



TAPE FROM CALIFORNIA — Phil Ochs — 
A&M SP 4148 

Phil Ochs stands in the forefront of our 
modern-day protesting minstrels, and his con- 
temporary songs have won him a loyal fol- 
lowing. On his second A&M LP his vocal- 
with-guitar-accompaniment has again been 
augmented with more complex musical pat- 
terns, this time with much more success. Ochs’ 
fans will be familiar with much of the mate- 
rial, especiallly “The War Is Over” and 
“White Boots Marching In A Yellow Land.” 


NOTHING BUT SOUL— James Brown— King 
1034 

James Brown has previously offered instru- 
mental efforts in the straight-soul bag, and 
now the multi-talented entertainer aims at 
the soul-jazz field. Featuring Brown on the 
organ, the James Brown Band (one of the 
better aggregations around) runs through a 
half-dozen tunes in fine form. Titles include 
“Soul With Different Notes,” “Go On Now,” 
and “Little Fellow.” Could be a winning effort 
for Brown.

I’M GONNA BE A COUNTRY GIRL AGAIN 
— Buffy Sainte-Marie — Vanguard VSD 79280 

Buffy Sainte-Marie’s new album was rec- 
orded with a group of noted Nashville musi- 
cians, including pianist Floyd Cramer. Dedi- 
cated to guitarist Chet Atkins and billed as 
Miss Sainte-Marie’s first country album, the 
set consists of thirteen songs, twelve of which 
she wrote. In addition to the title tune, the 
LP includes the artist’s recent single, “A 
Soulful Shade Of Blue”/“The Piney Wood 
Hills.” The singer’s dramatic, vivid style 
creates the sense of poetry in sound, and the 
disk should attract an enthusiastic following. 

HISTORY OF RHYTHM & BLUES, VOLS. 
5 & 6 — Various Artists — Atlantic SD 8193, 
8194 

The latest additions to Atlantic’s compre- 
hensive history of soul cover the years 1961 - 
64 and mark the passing of the old guard 
(the Drifters, the Coasters, La Vern Baker) 
and the birth of the new (Otis Redding, 
Wilson Pickett, and Joe Tex). Some of the 
songs present are the Drifter’s “On Broad- 
way,” Ben E. King’s “Stand By Me,” “Green 
Onions,” by Booker T. & the MG’s, Chris 
Kenner’s “Land Of 1000 Dances,” the Mar- 
Keys’ “Last Night,” Otis Redding’s “Mr. 
Pitiful,” Wilson Pickett’s “I’m Gonna Cry.” 


MOMENTS TO REMEMBER — DeAngelis 
Singers — ABC S 639 

This is the second entry from the Peter 
DeAngelis Singers, who have a very promis- 
ing sales future, and features such recent 
chart items as “Kiss Me Goodbye,” originally 
done by Pet Clark, the Association’s “Every- 
thing That Touches You,” the Union Gap’s 
“Young Girl,” and eight others. Excellently 
done set may do very well. Watch it. 



K. & J.J.: ISRAEL — Kai Winding/J. J. John- 
son— A&M SP 3008 

Trombonists Kai Winding and J. J. Johnson 
weave their impressive talents together, com- 
plementing each other expertly in nine tunes. 
In addition to the title outing, the set fea- 
tures “My Funny Valentine,” “Never My 
Love,” and “Try To Remember.” Here’s an 
offering which is likely to see considerable 
play in both jazz and pop areas. 


Jazz Picks 

HODGES & HINES/SWING’S OUR THING 
— Johnny Hodges/Earl Hines — Verve V 6- 
8732 

Johnny Hodges, alto saxist with Duke El- 
lington’s band, and famed jazz pianist Earl 
“Fatha” Hines make a formidable combina- 
tion on this stylish LP. Hodges penned three 
of the tunes on the set: “Open Ears,” “Can 
A Moose Crochet?” and “Bustin’ With Bus- 
ter.” Hines composed “One Night In Trini- 
dad” and “The Cannery Walk.” Bristling with 
buoyancy, this sparkling album should enjoy 
heavy sales action in jazz circles. 



Classical Picks 



FRENCH, GERMAN, SPANISH AND RUS- 
SIAN SONGS — Regina Resnik-Epic BC 1384 
On this album, mezzo-soprano Regina Res- 
nik lends her considerable talents to seven- 
teen classical songs by French composers 
Jean Phillipe Rameau, Gasparo Spontini, Jean 
Paul Martini, and Pierre Gaveaux; Spanish 
composer Joaquin Turina; Russian composers 
Peter Ilyitch Tchaikovsky and Sergei Proko- 
viev; and German composer Gustav Mahler. 
Miss Resnik’s voice is a delight and her ma- 
terial is well chosen. Pianist Richard Woitach 
provides excellent accompaniment. This set 
could do quite well in classical circles. 




BIGGER & BETTER — David Newman — 
Atlantic SD 1505 

The versatile talents of David Newman are 
spotlighted on this richly melodious LP. The 
artist plays alto sax on “Yesterday,” tenor 
sax on “And I Love Her,” and flute on “For 
Sylvia,” a particularly lovely selection. New- 
man’s sax work is smooth and mellow, and 
on flute he is fluid and graceful. This sweet- 
singing album provides a listening delight. 


CHILD OF PLENTY— Julie Budd— MGM SE 

4545 

13-year-old Julie Budd has heaps of talent. 
Her first album effort, “Child Of Plenty,” in- 
cludes her recent single, “All’s Quiet On West 
23rd,” a moving social commentary, along 
with her versions of “Black Is Black” and 
“People Are Strange” and some very strong 
originals. Lark was a winner on the pre- i 
taped NBC Showcase ’68 talent contest airing 
Tuesday, July 30, and will be on that show’s 
Sept, special. Exposure could help this LP 
considerably. 


11 P.M. SATURDAY— Bagatelle— ABC A 646 
Part of the Boston scene, the 10-man vocal 
and instrumental group, Bagatelle, here rec- 
orded in a concert atmosphere, features a 
strong brass section, which works very effec- 
tively on “Soul Man,” “Got To Get You Into 
My Life,” and “Shake.” Slanted toward blue- 
eyed-soul, they also turn in some strong orig- 
inal tunes such as “Such A Fuss About Sun- 
day” and “Hey You.” The group’s 10-minute 
“I Feel Good” medley, which includes some 
super-old R&B tunes, should get strong air- 
play on FMers. 


PAT McCORMICK TELLS IT LIKE IT IS— 
Atco SD 33-242 

Comedian Pat McCormick views the world 
through mad-colored glasses, and on this al- - 
bum the results of this vision are wildly hila- 
rious. “Pat McCormick’s New Daytime Game j) 
‘Humiliation’ ” is our favorite item, A mania- 
cal quiz show emcee destroys the career of a - 
contestant who is unable to answer an im- 
possible question. Three “Mondo Silly” tracks 
explore such madness as crossing a mouse 
and a hippopotamus and getting a beast which .• 
devours a cheese factory. An LP of imagina- 
tive wit. 


THE MAGIC OF JU-JU — Archie Shepp — 
Impulse AS 9154 f 

Tenor saxist Archie Shepp employs a sharp, 
vigorous attack as he performs four jazz 
tunes, all of which he composed. His sax sput- 
ters and growls on the title track, which 
takes up all of Side 1. The other three selec- 
tions on the set are “You’re What This Day 
Is All About,” “Shazam,” and “Sorry ’Bout 
That.” Jazz enthusiasts should find this album 
highly compelling. 



BAROQUE CANTATAS— Netania Davrath/ 
Wiener Solisten/ Anton Heiller/Richard Ru- 
dolf — Cardinal YCS 10028 

Israeli soprano Netania Davrath is the star 
of this recording, which contains four 
Baroque solo cantatas, two by George Fred- 
eric Handel and one each by Joseph-Hector 
Fiocco and Alessandro Scarlatti. Miss Dav- 
rath’s voice is pure and expressive and she 
is in excellent form all throughout the album. 
The Wiener Solisten provides the instrumen- 
tal background, Anton Heiller conducts and 
plays harpsichord, and Richard Rudolf is the 
solo trumpeter on the Scarlatti cantata. Fine 
performances by all.

Livingston Leaving Capitol 

acts as financial counselor to other 
corporations in the Los Angeles area. 
Nidorf also has been a director of 
Capitol Records and has an extensive 
background of experience in the en- 
tertainment field. 

Long Disk Career 

A hard-driving, soft-spoken exec, 
Livingston has had a rocket-like ca- 
reer in the entertainment industry. 
On Jan. 1, 1946, shortly after his dis- 
charge from the army, he joined 
Capitol in a job based on a concept of 
his own. The idea was to make chil- 
dren’s records, an area of the business 
that the industry had all but aban- 
doned since 1929. 

Livingston’s first record, “Bozo at 
the Circus,” sold over 100,000 the first 
month, and has sold over $40 million 
to date. It is still selling, along with 
some fifty other children’s records he 
created. 

In 1948, two years after he joined 
the Company, Livingston was named 
director of album repertoire. In 1949 
he was made vice president in charge 
of Albums and in 1951 vice president 
in charge of Artists and Repertoire, 
with responsibility for all creative as- 
pects of Capitol’s recording activities. 
His success in the record industry 
was documented in a Saturday Even- 
ing Post featured article devoted to 
his achievements. 

Left In 1956 

In 1956 Livingston left Capitol to 
become vice president in charge of 
west coast television programming for 
the National Broadcasting Company. 
He returned to Capitol in October 
1960 as vice president — creative ser- 
vices, and in Dec. 1961, he became 
Capitol’s president and was elected to 
the board of directors. In February 
1966, Livingston was elected a mem- 
ber of the board of Electric and Musi- 
cal Industries (EMI), the giant British 
record and electronics firm, which is 
Capitol’s major stockholder. 

Diversification Moves 

During his career at Capitol, Liv- 
ingston has also been instrumental in 
a number of diversifications and new 
developments in the record industry. 
Under his leadership, the first high- 
speed tape duplicating machinery was 
produced; Capitol direct marketing 
corporation (a mail order activity) 
was expanded into a major subsidiary; 
a contract was negotiated with the 
Russian Government granting Capitol 
exclusive manufacturing and distribu- 
tion rights to the Russian artists in 
the Western Hemisphere; and a merg- 
er with Audio Devices (a leading 


(Continued from Page 7) 

| manufacturer of precision magnetic > 
tape for computers, instrumentation, 

TV and sound and stereo cartridges) 
was consummated. Also under his 
leadership, Capitol successfully intro- 
duced America to the most popular 
recording group in the history of the 
industry — The Beatles. 

College Musician 

A native of McDonald, Pa., Living- ’ 
J ston studied several instruments as a 
youth and worked his way through 
the University of Pennsylvania play- 
ing saxophone and clarinet in a stu- 
dent dance band. After graduating 
from the LTniversity of Pennsylvania’s 
Wharton School of Finance and Com- 
merce with a Bachelor of Science de- 
gree, Livingston went to New York 
and worked in advertising for three 
years before enlisting in the army as ► 
a private. He emerged in 1946 as a 
2nd Lieutenant, and from there went 
to California to begin a career in the 
entertainment business. 

Alan Livingston is not the only 
member of his family to make a mark I 
in the entertainment industry. His 
brother, Jay, one of the country’s top 
songwriters, is a multiple Academy 
Award winner. 

Livingston is married to actress 
Nancy Olson and resides in Beverly 
Hills, California. 


Murray To Capitol Board 

(Continued from Page 7) 

Precision Equipment Corp.) 

“Mr. Murray’s election to the Capi- 
tol Industries and Audio Devices 
Board also marks the return of an im- 
portant figure in the growth of our 
company,” Wallichs added, noting 
that before joining General Precision J 
Murray served as a vice president of 
Capitol Records, Inc. 

Murray is also a former vice presi- 
dent and general manager of the rec- 
ord division of RCA. Prior to World 
War II he spent seven years in Japan 
as a joint Managing Director of RCA 
Victor Record Company of Japan and 
Columbia Record Company of Japan. 

In 1951, Murray joined General 
Precision Equipment Corp. as vice 
president and general manager of its 
General Precision Laboratory subsid. 

He became president of General Pre- 
cision Laboratory in 1957. In 1958 he 
was assigned additional duties as vice 
president, finance, in the parent com- 
pany, and in April of the following 
year became chairman of the board 
and chief executive officer of General 
Precision. . _

ASCAP Greets Alberto Ginastera 


NEW YORK — Alberto Ginastera, ac- 
claimed by the New York Times as 
“South America’s top composer,” was 
guest-of-honor at an ASCAP-hosted 
press conference last week (16), as a 
tribute to world-renowned composer 
prior to his return to Buenos Aires. 

Since arriving in the United States 
in February for an extended stay, 
Maestro Ginastera has been busy su- 
pervising performances and record- 
ing of many of his works, including 
his second opera, “Bomarzo,” intro- 
duced to New York by the New York 
City Opera Company in March. 
Shortly afterwards he was in Boston

24 Page Catalog Book 

NEW YORK — Audio Devices latest 
Audiotape catalog has just come out, 
containing an unusual combination of 
timely tips for use and care, as well 
as the selection of professional quality 
tape and accessories. 

Entitled “How to Select a Recording 
Tape,” the 24-page catalog also fully 
describes the performance charac- 
teristics of the five Audiotape formu- 
lations: all purpose, triple recording, 
low print, low noise and lubricated 
formulations. Pamphlet explains how 
each performs to meet specific needs in 
recording and playback. 

A chart is included which illustrates 
the variety of types, lengths and reel 
sizes which apply to each formulation. 
There is also a table of recording time 
for various tape lengths and speeds, 
giving this information for both one 
and two direction recording. An addi- 
tional chart matches types of tape 
with their uses to help readers answer 
the question “Which Tape is Best?” 

For the new tape recorder owner, 
the catalog gives a non-technical ex- 
planation of how tape is manufactured 
and how it works to record sound. A 
glossary of tape recording terms sup- 
plements this explanation. 

The catalog is available without 
charge from Audio Devices Inc.

2 New Labels Formed By 
Audrey Wiliams 

NASHVILLE — Audrey Williams has 
formed two new independent record 
labels, Bonanza and Williams, adding 
a new dimension to her firm, Audrey 
Williams Enterprises. The first Bon- 
anza disk, a C&W single called “Dr. 
1-7309,” by Lamar Morris, has already 
been released. 

Williams Records, which will be an 
R&B label, will have its first release 
at the beginning of August. Bobby 
Hendricks, who had a hit called 
“Itchy, Twitchy Feeling” some years 
ago, will bow the label with “Go On 
Home,” “Girl” b/w “She Used To Hold 
Me.” 

Mrs. Williams is not only directly 
in charge of both the Bonanza and 
Williams labels, but she is also pro- 
ducing all the material for them. She 
is now in the process of setting up 
distribution for her new diskeries. 


ville. There will be a late informal 
tour of famed Printer’s Alley hosted 
by Buddy Lee of Aud-Lee Attractions. 
There will be a luncheon on Tuesday, 
hosted by Tennessee Governor Buford 
Ellington at the state capitol. The 
Country Music Hall of Fame will host 
a cocktail buffet for the cast, press, 
and a number of country /western re- 
cording stars. Following a caravan of 
stars to the Paramount Theater, and 
the first viewing of “A Time To Sing,” 
an after-premiere party will be held 
at the new City Club. 


NEW YORK — The American Society 
of Composers, Authors and Publishers 
(ASCAP) has named Edward J. Shea 
Nashville regional executive director. 
Shea, who has been executive vice 
president of the Nashville Area Cham- 
ber of Commerce for the past ten 
years, is resigning that post to assume 
his new one. 

Juanita Jones, now ASCAP’s Nash- 
ville representative, will continue in 
her present capacity with the Society 
and will work closely with Ed Shea. 
Her success is a contributory factor 
in the present-planned expansion of 
the Society’s operation. 

A native of Nashville, Shea grad- 
uated from Vanderbilt University and 
received his masters degree from Pea- 
body College. He holds a doctor of 
laws degree from St. Bernard Col- 
lege. Shea is a graduate of organiza- 
tional management institutes at the 
University of Georgia and the Uni- 
versity of North Carolina. He partici- 
pated in special studies at the Uni- 
versity of Wisconsin and attended Ox- 
ford University in England. 

Shea has been or is involved in 
nearly every major civic endeavor in 
Nashville, including the United Giv- 
ers Fund, the USO, the National 
Foundation, the American Red Cross, 
the Salvation Army, the American 
Cancer Society, the St. Thomas Hos- 
pital Advisory Board, the Bishops 
Advisory Board for the Nashville 
Diocese, and he is a former first chair- 
man of the Tennessee Commission on 
the Performing Arts. 


Shea is a founder and former pres- 
ident of Samaritans Anonymous and 
the Senior Citizens. He is also presi- 
dent and founder of the Indo-Ameri- 
can Association of Tennessee. 

Shea was given the Metro Award 
of Honor on January 9, 1964 for “out- 
standing community service beyond 
the call of duty and at the risk of life 
and limb, particularly in the field of 
race relations” when he served as 
Chairman of the Mayor’s Commission 
on Human Relations. He was also 
given the Distinguished Citizen of the 
Year Award in Nashville in 1965. 

In making the appointment, ASCAP 
president Stanley Adams noted that 
“Edward J. Shea is one of the most 
knowledgeable and respected men in 
Nashville. His appointment as execu- 
tive regional director will bring his 
dynamic and energetic talents into the 
exciting area of contemporary country 
and western music. One of Mr. Shea’s 
responsibilities will be to expand 
ASCAP’s role in this truly American 
idiom through the development of new 
writers and publishers as well as 
heighten public interest in the So- 
ciety’s contribution to this increasing- 
ly important segment of today’s 
music.” 

Shea, a six battle star veteran of 
World War II, resides with his wife 
and seven children in Nashville. He 
will begin his new duties at the pro- 
posed ASCAP headquarters in Nash- 
ville after October 1st, the effective 
date of his resignation.

BILLY WALKER SALUTES THE COUN- 
TRY MUSIC HALL OF FAME— Monument 
SLP 18101 

Chanter Billy Walker has been around a 
long time, but not quite as long as most of 
the songs in his new album. The combination 
of the two (Walker & songs) should make 
everybody concerned (especially the dealers) 
a little bit happier and a little bit richer. Some 
of the powerful tunes delivered herein include 
“High Noon,” “Cold Cold Heart,” “Walking 
The Floor Over You” and “I’m So Lonesome 
I Could Cry.” 


OUR LAST RENDEZVOUS— Stu Phillips — 
RCA LSP/LPM 4012 

Stu Phillips could make a strong dent in 
the charts with this sparkling collection of 
carefully gathered material. Phillips has a 
way with a good ballad, a fact demonstrated 
often in this set. The title song, “To Get To 
You” and “That Completely Destroys My 
Plans” are three good examples. Also in- 
cluded here are three of Phillips’ single 
noisemakers, “Juanita Jones,” “Vin Rose” and 
“The Note In Box Number 9.” 


MONUMENTAL COUNTRY HITS— Various 
Artists — Monument SLP 18095 

From out of the past comes this collection 
of 10 country biggies from the Monument 
vaults. Included on this set are such goodies 
as Robert Mitc-hum’s “Little Old Wine Drink- 
er Me,” Billy Walker’s “I Taught Her Every- 
thing She Knows” and “A Million And One,” 
Dolly Parton’s “Dumb Blonde” and three 
Jeannie Seely items, “Don’t Touch Me,” “I’ll 
Love You More” and “When It’s Over.” Tunes 
from Grandpa Jones and Don Robertson 
round out the set. Should be good for a nice 
amount of coin. 



THE ALL-TIME GREAT COUNTRY IN- 
STRUMENTALS— Jim & Jesse— Epic BN , 
26394 

Could be good things on tap for this compila- 
tion of favorite country instrumentals as aptly - 
performed by guitarists Jim & Jesse. Pair’s 
following will go for their treatment of such 
standards as “Wildwood Flower,” “Orange 
Blossom Special,” “Sugar-Foot Rag” and 
“Buckaroo.” Also experiencing the special 
string work of Jim & Jesse are 7 other note- 
worthy tunes including “Down Yonder,” u 
“Fireball Express” and “Banderilla.” 


THE TERRIFIC TEXAS TROUBADORS 
AND GUESTS— Decca DL 5017/75017 

Ernest Tubb’s backup group goes out on i 
its own once again, this time with the help 
of guest vocalists Jack Greene, Wade Ray, 
Buck Evans and Bun Wilson. Four instru- U 
mentals, “Buddie’s Boogie,” “Tuxedo June- • 
tion,” “Ridgetop Stomp” and “Nashville I 
Shuffle” showcase the group’s excellent solo 
work. Group member Steve Chapman’s vocal 
work on “I Act Just Like This All The j 
Time” also goes over well. Needless to say, * 
the guests contribute strongly. Could be a 
big LP. 


INTRODUCING THE CHAPARRAL 
BROTHERS— Capitol ST 2922 

Striking debut album from the two Chapar- 
ral Brothers could see significant sales action 
and put this duo solidly on the country scene. 
Tight, Everly Brothers-type harmony (al- 1 
though more countrified) is employed on a 
dozen numbers, among which are the well- I 
known “Love Of The Common People,” and 
some excellent self-penned tunes including 
“Shattered Man,” “Out Of My Mind” and 
“Winner Take All.” “Standing In The Rain” ^ 
is also a gem. Keep close tabs on this set.

Country Reviews 





( Picks oi the Week ) 

BILL ANDERSON (Decca 32360) 

Happy State Of Mind (2:25) [Stallion, BMI-Anderson] 

“Happy State Of Mind” is a contagious, mid-tempo ballad that sounds 
rather like “Gentle On My Mind” and "Honey.” Both “Gentle" and “Honey” 
were monsters, and "Happy,” especially with Bill Anderson singing it. could 
be too. Keep close tabs on this one. Flip: "Time's Been Good To Me” (2:21) 
[Stallion, BMI-Anderson] 


LIZ ANDERSON (RCA Victor 9586) 

Cry, Cry Again (2:41) [Greenback, BMI-Anderson, Land] 

Here’s a moving woes item from Liz Anderson that should have no trouble 
reaching the charts. In the song, a mother hears her daughter praying for 
her errant father to come home. The daughter says, "If at first I don’t suc- 
ceed, I’ll cry, cry again.” Flip: “Me, Me, Me, Me, Me” (1:45) [Greenback, BMI- 
Anderson] 


CHARLIE LOUVIN (Capitol 2231) 

Hey Daddy (2:21) [Southtown, BMI-Chrysier] 

This is an effective, inspiring ode about a man who, after a period of 
weakness, gives up bars and blondes for the more rewarding pleasure of 
being with his children. Songster Charlie Louvin may have a real smash 
with this one. Don’t let it out of your sight. Flip: “She Will Get Lonesome" 
(2:35) [Acuff-Rose, BMI-C. & I. Louvin] 

CHARLIE RICH (Epic 10358) 

Raggedy Ann (2:35) [Blue Crest, Hill & Range, BMI-Frazier, Owens] 

Look out for Charlie Rich to make lots of noise with “Raggedy Ann.” Side 
is a tender, moving ballad about a girl from the poor side of the tracks. 
Feelingfully sung by Rich. Flip: "Nothing In The World” (2:36) [Makea- 
mi 1 1 ion, BMI-Rich] 

JOHN WAKELY (Decca 32345) 

I Can Almost See My Baby (2:36) [Riverside, ASCAP-Wakely] 

John Wakely has a very nice voice, rather on the gentle side, and "I Can 
Almost See My Baby” is a solid romantic tune. These two factors give the 
side excellent hit potential. Put it high on your list of disks to watch. Flip: 
"By Winter I’ll Be Gone” (2:36) [Mono, BMI-Hanson] 

MONTY LEE (K-Art 845) 

Truck’s Gonna Be My Home (2:01) [Smokey, SESAC-C. & D. Montgomery] 
Monty Lee may well have a winning item on his hands with this infec- 
tious truck driving ditty, “Truck’s Gonna Be My Home.” Excellent perfor- 
ance by the chanter deserves a careful listen. Flip: “Listen Arms” (2:07) 
[Glad, BMI-M. & E. Montgomery] 


( Best Bets 

CARL BUTLER AND PEARL (Co- 
lumbia 44587) 

Punish Me Tomorrow (2:49) [Pamper, 
BMI-Howard] Carl Butler does most 
of the singing on this guilt-filled 
romance ode. Side could appeal 
to enough listeners to emerge as a 
significant item. Scan it. Flip: “Good- 
bye Tennessee (2:32) [Francis & Mar- 
vin, BMI-Andrews] 


HANK LOCKLIN (RCA Victor 9582) 
Everlasting Love (2:09) [Rising Sons, 
BMI-Gayden, Cason] Could be a nice 
amount of airplay in the cards for 
Hank Locklin via this pleasant love 
ditty. Eye it with care. Flip: “I’m 
Slowly Going Out Of Your Mind” 
(2:40) [Chu-Fin, BMI-Bluefield] 


LAMAR MORRIS (Bonanza B101) 
DR 1-7309 (2:44) [Forest Hills, BMI- 
White] Audrey Williams’ new label, 
Bonanza, gets off to a nice start with 
this ballad about the troubles of a 
teenage girl. Mrs. Williams herself 
produced the deck. Chanter Lamar 
Morris delivers the song in an effective 
manner. No information available on 
the flip side at this time. 


JOHNNY LEEN & LEENS (Appa- 
loosa 1) 

(B^) Time Off For Good Behavior 

(3:15) [Cal-West ASCAP-Coopper] 
Catchy thumper. Flip: “It’s More 

Than I Can Bear” (3:25) [Cal-West 
ASCAP-Coopper] 


WALT RAYBURN (Toppa 1120) 
(B-|~) Ring Of White (2:19) [Tum- 
bler BMI-Rayburn] Twangy cheater’s 
item. Flip: “I’m Gonna Straighten 
Up” (2:00) [Tumbler BMI-Rayburn] 


__ ) 

RODNEY SCOTT (K-Ark 848) 

You For Me, Me For You (2:03) 
[Smokey, SESAC-Montgomery, Mont- 
gomery] Romance and religion are 
combined in this song as Rodney Scott 
sings, “He made you for me, me for 
you.” This pretty side could get good 
response from many listeners. Flip: “I 
Feel Like A King” (2:01) [Smokey, 
SESAC-Lowery] 


HOMER AND JETHRO (RCA Victor 
9581) 

Hill Billy Hippie (2:16) [Homer & 
Jethro, BMI-Burns, Haynes] Famed 
C&W comic artists Homer and Jethro 
should please their fans with this fun- 
filled outing, whose title explains the 
subject matter. Lots of laughs in these 
grooves. Flip: “I Crept Into The Crypt 
And Cried” (2:55) [Yonah, Greenback, 
BMI-Anderson] 

RAY CORBIN (Monument 1082) 

Sing The Blues To Daddy (2:35) [Re- 
turn, BMI-Corbin] A blues-stained, but 
hope-filled love effort, this one could 
do good things for chanter Ray Cor- 
bin. Keep it in sight. Flip: “Mansion 
Of Loneliness” (2:17) [Combine,, BMI- 
Corbin] 

RUSTY DELANEY fOhio 3684) 

(B— (— ) Stake Me A Claim Dad (2:53) 
[Cedarlane BMI-Feith Childhood pray- 
er on this lid. Flip: “Act Naturally” 
(2:42) [Blue Book BMI-Russell, Mor- 
rison] 

BOB MILLER (Ebb Tide II) 

(B— (— ) These Ole’ Hard Times (2:33) 
[Danrite BMI-Lane, Wright] Thum- 
in’ lament here. Flip: “Soap Box” 
(2:33) [Danrite BMI-Zaruba, Jr., 
Wright]

CmhHmt Country Roundup 


Once or twice a year our ace coun- 
try editor, Tom McEntee, begins to 
feel the strain of months of hard 
work upon his splendid mind. His con- 
stitution, superb at all other times, 
grows shaky. His eyes become glazed, 
he gnaws pencils, his heart beats er- 
ratically. He knows it is time to take 
a rest. 

When Tom is on vacation, we carry 
on as best we can, knowing full well, 
as we assemble the country section, that 
we can never come up to his standards. 
As we blunder through the singles 
reviews or compile, with consum- 
mate awkwardness, the Country Top 
50, our ineptitude weighs us down and 
we marvel at the skill and savoir faire 
with which he does his job. So it is 
that at this time we feel bound to pay 
tribute to this “man for all seasons” 
(one or two weeks excepted), to ac- 
knowledge his years of fine service 
to country music and to wish him con- 
tinued success in his chosen calling. 
We are certain that Tom’s loyal read- 
ers agree with us in our estimate of 
him.

The Cream are to split up at the end of the year and form three new groups. 
They will undertake their farewell tour of the United States in mid-October for 
five weeks returning for a concert at the Royal Albert Hall. In announcing the 
split their manager, Robert Stigwood, said they would remain under his exclu- 
sive management both personal and recording as will members of the new 
groups. Whilst in America the Cream will record an album for future release 
on Polydor. In the Cash Box American Top 100 Album charts the Cream have 
two entries in the Top Ten with “Disraelie Gears” and “Wheels Of Fire,” and 
their single “Sunshine Of Your Love” is hurtling up the Top 40. 

More news from the Stigwood front is that the Robert Stigwood Organiza- 
tion and the Rik Gunnell Agency have merged to form Rik Gunnell Manage- 
ment operating independently under Rik and John Gunnell beneath the Stig- 
wood banner. The Gunnells are Joint Managing Directors with Robert Stigwood 
as Chairman. Among the acts represented by Gunnel Management are Georgie 
Fame, Alan Price, P. J. Proby and the Paper Dolls. 

Nathan Joseph who heads up the independent Transatlantic label is delighted 
with the reaction to the newly formed Pentangle (which combines the talents 
of Bert Jansch and John Renbourn). They recently gave a sro concert at the 
Royal Festival Hall and drew a 7,500 capacity crowd at the recent Woburn 
Festival. Their first album “The Pentangle” is selling at a terrific rate and it 
is on release in Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Germany, Holland, Australia and 
New Zealand. Negotiations are under way for the Pentangle to be released in 
the States by a major label. 

Franklin Boyd delighted with his current success via “Yesterday Has Gone,” 
the Teddy Itandazzo composition he acquired during a recent visit to America 
and covered by new British group Cupid’s Inspiration on CBS. He also has the 
current No. 1 American smash which is entering the British charts, Herb 
Albert’s first vocal offering “This Guy’s In Love” (A & M) as well as Dionne 
Warwick’s “Do You Know The Way To San Jose” on Pye now in its eighth 
week in the British Top 20. All three copyrights are in the Franklin Boyd 
catalog as is the new deal just completed for British representation of Burt 
Bacharach-Hal David compositions. Film music too is playing its part with the 
acquisition of theme music to “Till Death Us Do Part,” a film version taken 
from the controversial TV series.

published by Valando. 

James Venner, London producer of the hippie musical “Hair.” hi* nnnomv’ed 
the postponement of its opening from this month until the end of September 
in order that the show can be presented as closely as possible in line with the 
Broadway production. 21 year old Vince Edwards has been signed for one of 
the roles. Meanwhile “Jacques Brel Is Alive And Well And Living In Paris” 
has opened to generally favorable reaction starring its original American cast 
members. An original cast album has been issued by CBS. 

The venue for this year’s National Jazz and Blues Festival on August 9th 
to 11th is the Kempton Park racecourse at Sunbury-on-Thames. A large camp- 
ing site will be available for fans wishing to attend all five concerts. Blues

afternoon each. Among the names set are Spencer Davis, Jerry Lee Lewis, Jon 
Hendricks, the Herd, Jeff Beck, the Traffic, Jethro Tull, the Marmalade, the 
Incredible String Band and John Mayall. 

Leslie Simmons of Kenneth Hum Promotions is negotiating to present in the 
West End and on Broadway the musical based on child welfare philanthropist 
Dr. Barnad’s life called “Please, Sir.” This will be prior to its filming under the 
direction of Bryan Forbes. Simmons, who took control of Hume’s enterprises 
following his death a year ago, is also planning a film version of the ballet 
“Witch Boy” next Spring and is booking star talent including David McWilliams 
for the Sporting Club D’Ete in Monte Carlo.

Hanning Starts Duties 
As Southern Sweden Chief 

STOCKHOLM, Sweden — Lennart 
Hanning, since July 1, the head of 
Southern Music AB, has now started 
his activity in a field that is compara- 
tively new to him. 

Originally set to becoming a concert 
pianist, this plan was spoiled in a ear 
accident in 1960. In 1961 he was con- 
tacted by the late Simon Brehm, head 
of Karusell Grammofon AB and offer- 
ed a position as record producer, a 
job he kept until 1964, when he joined 
the Swedish Broadcasting Co. as band- 
leader and music producer in the light 
program section. 

When Roland Sjogren decided to 
leave Southern Music, due to illness, 
Hanning was appointed the new head 
of Southern’s Scandinavian activities. 

Southern Music AB, which recently 
bought the independent record pro- 
ducer, Scan-Disc Recording Co., AB, 
has plans of building up a national 
as well as international catalog, Han- 
ning told Cash Box. So far, Annikka 
Risberg as soloist, as well as member 
of the group Annikas, and the ballad 
singer Tor Bergner, are leading 
names at the Scan-Disc label.

Before Audience Of 10,000 Fans 


RECOARO — • Ten thousand persons 
were on hand to watch Caterina Ca-

final night of the Cantagiro, Enzio 
Radaelli’s Italian touring song fes- 
tival, and tens of thousands more 
watched on national TV. Miss Caselli, 
competing in the “A” (top-name) di- 
vision, won with “II Volto Della 
Vita,” the Italian version of “Days 
of Pearly Spencer.” 

The 7th edition of the Cantagiro 
lasted for 18 days, with three of the 
shows getting TV coverage. Winner 
of the “B” (newcomer) team compe- 


tition were the Showmen (RCA 
Italiana) for their revival of the old 
Italian standard “Un ’ora Sola Ti 
Vorrei.” Runner-up’s in the “A” team 
were Gianni Morandi (RCA Italiana) 
for his Italian hit, “Chimera,” and 
French lark Dalida (RCA Italiana)

Carlin, Davray Drop Suit 

Carlin Music and Davray Music 
have decided not to proceed with the 
copyright action commenced last April 
in the High Court against Philips 
Records, Dick James Music and Ar- 


cusa for an injunctinon and damages. 
The action arose out of the alleged 
similarity in the main theme between 
the song “La La La,” the winner of 
the Eurovision Song Contest, com- 
posed by Arcusa, records of which 
were marketed by Philips Records, 
and “Death Of A Clown,” first re- 
leased in July, 1967, and composed 
by Ray & Dave Davies. 

Carlin Music and Davray Music 
accept that, although there may have 
been a technical infringement, there 
was no conscious attempt to take the 
main theme of “Death Of A Clown” 
for “La La La.” The Writ was origi- 
nally issued against Northern Songs, 
who did not in fact publish “La La 
La.” Carlin Music would like to 
apoligize for this error.

Six weeks after the great social crisis here, the record industry has rapidly 
regained its stride. Sales are frantastic. For example, Philips, whose produc- 
tion had been geared for 35,000 records a day, has had to step up to the 
110,000 figure each day for the past two weeks. A wonderful indication of 
things to come.

Spanish chantress Massiel is visiting Buenos Aires this week for appearances 
on television. RCA, who releases Massiel recordings in this country, has been 
working on the promotion of the winner of the Eurovision ^Festival through 
her singles and LP, concentrating mainly on her version of “La La La, still 
appearing in the local Top Twenty lists. 

RCA’s top local artist Palito Ortega is starting a tour of the Americas in a 
few days, including Venezuela, Puerto Rico, Mexico and the States. Palito s 
new LP, “El Angel,” received good promotion recently through a special pro- 
gram aired by Channel 13. 

Music Hall has released a new single by Nancy Sinatra under the Reprise 
logo with “Tony Rome” and “100 Years,” as well as another single by Lee 
Hazlewood and albums by the Joe Cuba Sextet, Hawaiian star Don Ho, the 
Association and Alberto Cortez. The latter is devoted to music written by 
Atahualpa Yupanqui, with orchestra directed and arrangements by Waldo de 
los Rios. . 

Odeon is outing the second LP by Engelbert Humperdinck who has. been 
scoring well with his version of “Cuando M’Innamoro” which appeared in the 
local lists. Among the newies there is also a single by Matt Monro, “Alguien 
Canto,” sung in Spanish, which is expected to sell strongly in this market. 
Also coming from Odeon is the new Rolling Stones single, “Jumpin’ Jack 
Flash,” which is receiving heavy radio play. 

Phonogram arranged a gathering for the press and deejaysm to introduce 
a new series of “musieasettes” with the music from recent releases which will 
be increasingly made available. As reported before, these musieasettes will 
feature about 150 different titles by the end of 1968 and are expected to reach 
good sales volume in short time. Folk artists Los Fronterizos are appearing on 
stage at the El Nacional theater every Monday evening this month and are 
finishing the recording of the second volume of the “Coronacion del Folklore” 
albums with Ariel Ramirez and Eduardo Falu. 

Mauricio Brenner of Fermata infos about the release of “Buen Tiempo” by 
Brazilian chanter and composer Chico Buarque de Hollanda, originally recorded 
by RGE of that country. Brenner also reported that Enrique Lebendiger, head 
of Fermata in Brazil, will visit Buenos Aires in a few days for talks about 
future operations in both markets. 

Trova is releasing a single by the Cuarteto Vocal Zupay with two tunes 
culled from their next LP currently under preparation. Main titled is “Mi 
Pueblo Chico,” winner of the Odol Song Festival several years ago, revamped 
by this folk group. The LP by La Tia Leonor with light versions of classical 
music themes is selling very well, and the diskery is preparing a new album 
by this group. It is interesting to note that this album has strong international 
value due to its repertoire valid in many countries. 

TV and radio producer Ricardo Kleinman has started a new venture at the 
Di Telia Theater with pop artist Marta Minujin. The show is called “Import- 
Export” and features beat music with psychedelic surroundings in local style. 

CBS is working strongly on the promotion of the new album by Roberto 
Carlos, “El Show,” which also features other Brazilian artists. Carlos is arriv- 
ing July 31 and will appear at the Opera Theater and record some tapes for 
the “La Galera” program on Channel 11. There are good sales reports for 
“Young Girl,” the Union Gap single, and for “Una Muchacha y una Guitarra,” 
the local single by Sandro who will shoot two films shortly. 

More about Music Hall: two of the teen groups recording for this label, the 
Sound and Co. and the Walkers, will take part in the series of beat shows 
organized by the Payro Theater for August. The diskery has recently released 
a new album by the Sound and Co. and one by the Walkers a few weeks ago.

Big Year For South 
Africa's Trutone Label 

Trutone again had a very successful 
year. One of the highlights of the year 
was the acquisition of the distributor- 
ship for the MGM complex of labels. 

Trutone are the pioneers in the 
musicassette field, and the year also 
featured Trutone’s launch of a con- 
centrated musicassette campaign. This 
campaign was launched in March by 
C. Solleveld, Chairman of the Gramo- 
phone Philips Group. During his visit 
Solleveld also signed a long term dis- 
tribution agreement with Trutone for 
the Philips labels. 

The year also saw giant strides be- 
ing made in the establishment, both 
in South Africa and to a certain ex- 
tent overseas, of South African re- 
cording artists, and Trutone had a 
fair share in this development. Mr. 
Rosengarten, Trutone’s General Man- 
ager, visited the U.K. and during his 
visit arranged for the worldwide re- 
lease of four LPs by South African 
artists, these being: — 

Sax-O-Phonics ’68 — Art Heatlie & 
His Orchestra 

Burning Soul — The Flames 

Soul Fire — The Flames 

Soul Meeting — Una Valli 

Considerable interest was shown in 
the possibility of Una Valli appearing 
on television in the U.K. Another 
Trutone group whose records were 
released overseas were The Invaders, 
one of whose seven singles was award- 
ed a gold disk. This group also re- 
ceived a special gold award for the 
sale of their records in South Africa. 

A new star on the horizon, recently 
discovered by Trutone, is Hilary. Her 
seven single “Sunglasses” hit the 
South African charts two weeks after 
release and by the third week had 
reached the number six position, thus 
undoubtedly heading right for the top. 

The year saw the visit of Liberace 
and Shelly Berman to South Africa, 
both of whom played to capacity aud- 
iences, receiving rave reviews in the 
press and a great welcome from the 
general public. 

The pop artists who made a par- 
ticular impression on the local scene 
were Manfred Mann, Tommy James 
& The Shondells, The American Breed, 
Dave Dee, Dozy, Beaky, Mick & Tich 
and, of course, The Troggs. The 
Troggs were recently awarded a spe- 
cial gold merit award by Trutone for 
outstanding sales of their records in 
South Africa. 

Like in most other parts of the 
world, Paul Mauriat’s “Love Is Blue” 
also reached the top of the South 
African charts. 

The South African market being al- 
most unique by the fact that literally 
more LPs are sold than seven singles, 
LP artists are of tremendous import- 
ance and the following are catalogue 
evergreens : — 

Billy Vaughn; A1 Caiola; Paul 
Mauriat; Liberace; The Troggs; Wal- 
ter Wanderley; Astrud Gilberto; 
Brook Benton; Jimmy Smith. 

There has also been quite a definite 
change in the trends of the Bantu 
market. Traditional music is definite- 
ly on the way out and the African of 
today definitely prefers their particu- 
lar type of modern music featuring in 
the main solo saxophones. In the 
urban centres in particular progres- 
sive jazz and soul are beginning to 
get an ever increasing following.

*■*- COIN MACHINE NEWS 


EDITORIAL: Promoting Coin Equipment 


Webster defines promotion as — “the stirring up of in- 
terest in an enterprise.” Whether that be accomplished 
through advertising, free publicity, or both, promotion 
has become a necessary marketing tool in this era for 
selling everything from soup to nuts. What about coin 
machine operation? This too. The services the music 
and games operator offers can be made more profitable 
through a little promotional ingenuity just like most 
anything else on the market. But first let’s examine the 
{ basic premise behind promotion before we see how its 
practical application can gain more money for the 
l average operating company. 

Promotion is employed to get both the name and the 
description of a particular product before the buying 
public in order to spark interest in it and create, what 
the Madison Ave. boys call, “brand preference” over its 
competitors. In the last analysis, of course, the strongest 
reason for the purchase of any product is the quality of 
the product itself — “customer satisfaction” — but some 
means must be employed to introduce that product and 
continually remind the buyers that it’s there. 

Now what does the coin machine operating company 
offer? Very simply — entertainment through a coin chute. 
The operator sells two things: 1. his services to the loca- 
tion owner; and 2. music and game fun to the location’s 
customers. Likewise, he makes more money if: 1. he 
gets more locations; and 2. the machines on these loca- 
tions earn more coins. 

Practical Application 

Promotion should be employed by the modern operat- 
ing company as one more tool in gaining new locations. 
In addition to the face to face confrontations with the 
proprietor, keeping a pulse on new locations opening up 
in the area and the purchase of competitive routes, the 
operator can more effectively make his presence felt by 
running a nice sized and good-looking display ad in the 
local phone directory, detailing his music, amusement 
and vending services. He should also run similiar ads 


from time to time in big editions of the local paper. 
Furthermore, he should let the community at large see 
the route company name on a well fitted-out route truck, 
on the facade of the operation’s headquarters and on 
his servicemen’s uniforms. Simply then, take the means 
at hand to get the name before the public, create an 
image of quality and you’ll never be a stranger when you 
walk into a potential location. 

The second avenue of promotion is what is termed 
“point of purchase.” We call it on-location merchandis- 
ing and all it means is using signs, pictures, posters, 
contests, bonuses, prizes, tournaments . . . anything 
short of a brass band to coax the folks over to play the 
machines. (Remember the CB Merchandisers Handbook 
series?) 

Good promotion also includes attractive and informa- 
tive business cards and company letterhead — those dis- 
playing photos of jukes and games and a list of services 
offered invariably create more interest than the plain 
printed variety. And don’t forget that little doodads like 
keyrings, money clips, tie pins, decks of cards, etc. etc., 
all bearing the company name in combination with some 
miniature of a game, a juke or the company trademark, 
serve to create a good deal of interest in your firm. 

It requires no special talent to beat the drum for one’s 
own company — only a healthy respect for the benefits 
that properly placed, intelligently applied promotion can 
bring and a little serious thought. Of course, there are 
agencies in nearly every moderate sized town that will 
help an operator merchandise his services for a fee. For 
the busy operator, this may be the best suggestion. 

One last thought — when an operating company gets 
its name in front of the public eye, it means one more 
plank knocked out of the barrier of misunderstanding 
that stands between the operator and the man on the 
street. People tend to mistrust the unknown. Likewise, 
they respect what they know. Think about it. 


NAMA INCREASES MEMBERSHIP DUES , EFFECTIVE JANUARY, 7969 

■ Higher costs, emergency programs cited as reasons 

$125,001 to $500,000— $1,020 ' 


C H I C A GO — The minimum dues 
amount paid by operator and bottler 
members, and dues rates of machine 
manufacturers and allied members 
have been increased for the first time 
since 1957, by action of the board of 
the National Automatic Merchandis- 
ing Association (NAMA), according 
to Meyer Gelfand, president. 

Gelfand said the dues changes will 
take effect in January 1969. Except 
for the minimum figure, the present 
dues rates for operating companies, 
$13 for each full-time employee and 
$7 for each part-time employee, will 
remain unchanged. 

Minimum annual dues for vending 
operator member firms will be $100 
for the company and for the first two 
persons reported, changed from the 
present $35 per year which covered 
only the company and the owner. 

The special bottler member category 
also was raised to a $100-a-year min- 
imum. 


Dues for machine manufacturer 
members will be increased 20 per cent 
for each dues bracket and the maxi- 
mum for manufacturers will be raised 
from $12,500 a year to $15,000. 

Also slated for an increase will be 
the dues of “allied members.” The 
Board of Directors will determine this 
rate at its September meeting based 
on recommendations to be made by a 
special advisory committee composed 
of allied and operator members. 

As part of the dues changes, the 
NAMA directors also established sev- 
eral new categories to fit the diver- 
sified activities of companies in the 
“allied member” segment. For several 
of these new categories the annual 
rate will be $100. 

Dues rates of machine manufac- 
turers are based on auunal sales vol- 
ume. The new rates, including the 20 
per cent increase, will be as follows: 

Sales to $125,000— $600 


$500,001 to $1,500,000— $2,160 
$1,500,001 to $5,000,000— $4,200 
$5,000,001 to $10,000,000— $6,600 
$10,000,001 to $15,000,000— $9,600 
$15,000,001 to $25,000,000— $12,000 
Over $25,000,000— $15,000 
Gelfand pointed out that operating 
costs of the association and the addi- 
tion of many new services in the past 
10 years have made the increase in 
dues mandatory. 

“Because of higher costs and several 
emergency programs, NAMA was 
forced to budget expenditures in ex- 
cess of income in recent years,” Gel- 
fand explained. The association re- 
ported a deficit of $48,814 in 1967 
and expects expenditures to be $30,- 
000 higher than income this year, 
Gelfand said. “It is obvious that we 
can no longer furnish the many new 
services required by our members at 
the rates established in 1957.”

OMAHA, NEB. — Coin Operated In- 
dustries of Nebraska held a meeting, 
Sunday, July 21st, at the Holiday Inn 
in Omaha, where they discussed such 
topics as “direct sales, 2 for 25t' play, 
award incentives and public relations”, 
among, an impressive list of other is- 
sues facing Nebraska operators. The 
meeting commenced at 1:30 P.M., with 
president, Ed Kort initiating the dis- 
cussions. 

Sunday afternoon an informal Ban- 
quet in honor of Howard Ellis and Ted 
Nichols was held where Jerry Witt 
praised them for their accomplish- 
ments and assistance to C.O.I.N. and 
the entire industry. Both men are 
ardent supporters of MOA and have 
dedicated many hours of their time in 
the betterment of MOA. 

Kort made a series of interesting 
comments beginning with, “with new 
problems confronting Nebraska op- 
erators there is the immediate need 
for greater unity. This association 
needs every operator in the state as a 
member and we need the presence of 
all members at all meetings. This is 
the only sure way of combatting our 
problems. 

“Unless we have a serious meeting 
of the minds about direct sales we may 
be too late. If you have not been 
bothered by direct sales, you won’t 
have long to wait. You should plan 
now how to offset as many of the sales 
as possible. The only way you can do 
this is find out what others are doing 


to combat the problem. And, the only 
way you can do this is to attend the 
meetings.” 

Kort continued, “as a member of an 
association there are so many benefits 
to be gained. Especially from the 
meetings, where you associate with 
your neighboring operators. The so- 
cial atmosphere and the exchange of 
ideas builds confidence in each other 
and delevolpes a healthy situation for 
all concerned.” 


New Tax Tables 
Offered by MOA 

CHICAGO — With passage by congress 
of the 10 per cent surcharge on income 
taxes, it has become necessary for 
firms to increase the withholding tax 
from employee wages and salaries. 
Fred Granger, MOA executive vice 
president, announced recently that the 
association is “pleased to provide 
members with the new Graduated 
Withholding Tax Tables as a member- 
ship service.” 

Granger said, “Each member will 
receive one free copy. We have a lim- 
ited number of extra copies that will 
be available at a cost of $2.50 per 
copy.” 

They can be obtained by writing or 
calling Granger at Music Operators of

" Safari " Is The Name 
Fun's The Game 

CHICAGO — Bally Manufacturing Cor- 
poration, Chicago, commenced deliv- 
ery this week of “Safari,” first Bally 
2-player flipper pinball since 1966, 
available in choice of Replay or Add- 
A-Ball models. 

“The sensational success of recent 
multiple player games,” commented 
Bill O’Donnell, Bally president, 
“proves that a 2-player Add-A-Ball 
game is practical. Although the bulk 
of ‘Safari’ games built will be in the 
Replay version, Add-A-Ball operators 
will have another opportunity to move 
into the increasingly popular 2-player 
class. 

“And they have a wonderful game 
for the move. From the colorful, 
comic backglass to the offset flippers 
at the bottom of the playfield, ‘Sa- 
fari’ is alive with action. 

“Among the 30 different score- 
building targets, last minute suspense 
is insured by rollovers next to the 
flippers which suddenly jump from 10 
to 100 when the new ‘Tiger-Trail’ 
feature is lit. 

“The ‘Tiger-Trail’ feature also ac- 
tivates Bonus Score registers on the 
backglass and jumps one rollover 
from 10 to 200 — the ‘big difference’ 


DELTA BILLIARDS OFFER COIN-OP MODEL, "DELTA 77 " 

| Delta Is Div. Of Duarte Int'l, Headed By Coinvet Joe Duarte 



Delta 77 (40" x 80" Playfield) Coin-op 


LOS ANGELES, Calif. — The Delta 
Billiards Mfg. Co., a division of Du- 
arte International Sales Co., a com- 
pany that has been active in the do- 
mestic and export distribution of 
coin-operated machines for over ten 
years, has announced the release of 
their first entry into the coin-op pool 
table field. The firm manufactured 
home table only, previously to the 
Delta 77 (40 x 80 playfield) coin-op 
model. 

Joseph Duarte, head of the firm, 
said, “the Delta 77 has several revolu- 
tionary new features. The new bolt- 
down cushion rails can be removed in 
less than 2 minutes without any spe- 
cial tools. The Delta ball release mech- 
anism is extremely simple and 
trouble-free with no levers, cams or 
any parts to wear out. The coin box is 
located under the table and will mini- 
mize robbery damages. It also has a 
vertical coin drop.” 

Duarte enthusiastically explained 
other features of the new coin table, 
We have a rigid slate platform with 
no plywood sheet liner or suspended 
beams and the full-width interlocking 
edge beams cannot sag or bend, being 
designed to provide maximum aeria- 
tion for the slate.” 

“In addition, the table has live rub- 
ber cushions, genuine Italian slate 
commercial felt, open - bottom, self 
cleaning gullies, extra-heavy leg level- 


lers, burn and scratch resistant plastic 
wood finish,” Duarte further revealed. 

Factory and offices are located at 
800 East 29th Street, Los Angeles 
90011, telephone (213) 234-9077. The 
factory has a 30,000 sq. ft. manufac- 


turing plant. 

The Delta tables are distributed in 
California by Badger Sales Co. In 
Oregon by Dunis Distributing and in 
Washington by Music-Vend. Duarte 
will be appointing distributors in 
other areas as production expands.

BAC Thinks Highly 
Of Arcades 

Along the Belgian Coast there is a 
community by the name of Blanken- 
berghe. Apparently many families 
from Belgium and surrounding coun- 
tries spend their vacations in this area. 
In Blankenberghe there are several 
arcades, three in particular are owned 
by the Belgium Amusement Company 
and are run by Sol Groenteman, man- 
aging director of Belgium Amusement. 

The majority of vacationers are 
British as evidenced by the number 
of British pennies taken from the ma- 
chines. Normally, in Belgium play must 
be with checks, but the Britishers use 
up their pennies as well. Groenteman 
commented on the equipment located 
in the arcades, “Mayfield’s Penny 
Lanes have taken on very well and so 
has their Periscope. 

“Another successful machine is Alec 
Electronics’ Guided Missile, along wit) 
Sega’s Periscope. It’s a beautiful ma- 
chine,” was Groenteman’s comment, 
He has installed a whole row of Sega’:; 
Rifleman machines and finds them an 
excellent draw. As Sega distributor 
for the Benelux countries, Groenteman 
has had many pressing invitations to 
visit the Sega headquarters in Japan.; 

Groenteman said he was looking for 
games that were not too complicated, 
“things that are interesting, but easy 
to understand. Our customers are of| 
every nationality, so too many detailed! 
instructions are out, for they would) 
have to be in many languages.” , 

Sound Effects 

One thing that has really become 
popular on games is sound effects. 
“For any machine to do really well, 
they must have sound effects. It’s the 
sound that attracts people,” stressed 
Groenteman. It is evidenced by the 
rows of people waiting to put their 
checks and coins in the Bally Dogies., 


CHICAGO — The value of vending ma- 
chines shipped by manufacturers in 
1967 dropped 12 per cent to $187,282,- 
000 from the previous year, while the 
542,027 machines shipped in 1967 
reached the lowest level since the 
1950’s. 

The drop in machine shipments came 
in the face of new records set by the 
sale of products through vending ma- 
chines. These totaled over $4.5 billion 
m 1967. 

The annual study of vending ma- 

t? e P r °duction is compiled by the 
U.S. Bureau of the Census, with the 
cost underwritten by N A M A. 

The dollar value of 1967 shipments 
was topped in 1965 ($195,843,000) and 
in 1966 ($212,338,000). In 1967 the 
number of machines shipped dropped 
below 600,000 for the first time since 
the total was first surveyed in 1960. 

Shipments in every machine cate- 
gory dropped below 1966 levels, except 
for canned beverage machines and hot 
canned food machines. Canned soft 


drink vender shipments continued the 
dramatic upsurge of recent years, in- 
creasing by 40 per cent over 1966 for 
a total of 52,310 units (37,271 in 1966). 
This compares with 29,086 units in 
1965 and 12,331 in 1964. 

While production of canned soft 
drink venders is on the upswing, bottle 
soft drink machine shipments dropped 
to 87,600 units in 1967 from 123,695 in 
1966. 

Hot and cold beverage machines ac- 
counted for 65 per cent of the total 
value of machines shipped, with $122,- 
507,000. 

The value of confection and food ma- 
chines amounted to $39,724,000, while 
miscellaneous categories, including 
cigarette venders, totaled $25,051,000. 

Coffee venders which brew a single 
cup at a time from fresh grounds con- 
tinued to hold their own, with ship- 
ments remaining at nearly three times 
the number of “instant” and other 
types of coffee machines (21,051 vs. 


7,472 machines). 

The Bureau of the Census did not 
count the number of manufacturers 
whose shipments totaled less than 
$100,000, although their production 
figures are included in the totals. 
Thirty-six of the companies reporting 
were above that bracket, compared 
with 38 in 1966. Represented in the 
report are both domestic and export 
shipments of new machines, including 
those shipped on consignment. No 
data are shown for rebuilt or repaired 
machines. 

Port-ale Expands Territory 

LOlS ANGELES — The territory cov- 
ered by Portale Automatic Sales Co. 
on behalf of Rock-Ola music and vend- 
ing equipment has been extended to 
include the state of Arizona. This new 
operational area joins Portale’s previ- 
ous territory which covered the south- 
ern portion of California as well as 
the counties of Lincoln and Clark in 
Nevada. 


“And it’s the same with the new, 
Rally-France flippers,” he said. This 1 , 
trend towards sound effects in amuse-’ 
ment machines no doubt started with' 
Seeburg’s world-famous Shoot-The 
Bear. The Seeburg game probably en- 
joys the most enduring success than 
any other game because it continues 
to draw crowds in many arcades all 
over the world. Groenteman has a row] 


of the “Bears” which still occupies, 
one of the best positions in hi; ade 
and they are an all-time draw 

Another type of machine winch en- 
joys good success in Belg’uvu is the 
bowlers. “This is an atr lion that 
maintains it’s success, the people who 
play the bowling alleys probably don t 


have bowling where they come from so 
its something new for them,” com- 
mented Groenteman, 

“Above all other, I enjoy planning 
and running an arcade. In my opinion, 
an arcade must be a place where 
people can get away from reality for 
awhile,” said the arcade man.

Cash Box — July 27, 1968 




CashBox profile on.- Russ Mawdsley —“Wears Many Hats” 


. . each individual contributes to 


the social & economic welfare of his own community.” 


This week’s Cash Box Profile subject 
is Russell Mawdsley, working partner 
in Russell-Hall, Inc., of Holyoke, 
Mass., along with Ralph Hynes, who is 
president and Leslie Hall, who is the 
secretary. Mawdsley acts as treasurer 
of the firm and wears many hats with 
his various repertoire of duties. 

He started out in the business in 
1938, while just a kid, cleaning ma- 
chines. His brother-in-law was in the 
business and Mawdsley would hang 
around his office and lend a hand doing 
whatever he could. He did this while 
going to school and then came the 
Marine Corps. After the war, in 1946, 
Mawdsley was discharged and he went 
back into the coin machine business 
full - time with his brother - in - law 
where he stayed on until 1952, at 
which which time he and his two 
working partners, Hynes and Hall, 
purchased the firm. The firm is pres- 
ently undergoing an expansion pro- 
gram whereby it will move into 5,200 
square feet of the second floor in the 
building presently occupied. One of the 
larger and more progressive operating 
firms in New England, Russell-Hall 
operates within a radius of 25-30 miles 
of the home office in Holyoke. Mawds- 
ley, himself, is one of the most enthu- 
siastic profile subjects we’ve ever 
talked with. For some interesting and 
thought provoking comments from the 
man himself, read the following can- 
did question-answer session. 

What type of equipment comprises 
the larger portion of your route? 

“We have more cigarette machines 
than any of the other types. Next 
comes candy, then probably music, but 
amusement games and the other vari- 
ous vending equipment we operate 
would come before music. We have ap- 
proximately 1,000 machines of all 
types. Incidentally, we are building 
our own commissary up on the second 
floor.” 

Which is the most lucrative to oper- 
ate? 

“Well, in vending, when you consi- 
der the cost of the unit and what you 
get back — I have to say candy — you 
get more profit per dollar in this area. 
You can buy a case of candy for $5 
and sell it for $10. The average price 
of a machine is $350.— the commission 
averages from 8 to 10 per cent, so you 
can see right there a 40 per cent profit. 
Candy is a very good item to carry, 
there’s no spoilage and you can always 
rotate those items that don’t move in 
one spot to another spot where they 
will. Of all the coffee, beverage and 
candy units we operate — candy has 
the least amount of service calls. 

“Then, in the amusement segment of 
the business, pool tables are the best. 
The pool table is the most profitable 
piece of amusement equipment ever to 
come along in the business. Due pri- 
marily to the small amount of service 
and the big earning ratio. You can 
leave a pool table in a location for a 
year and it will find its own level, 
whereas, a pingame will get ‘flash 
play’ for a few weeks and then you 
have to rotate it to another spot. We 
have a couple of pool table locations 
we’ve had for five years and they’re 
earning more constantly. We change 
each location every year to 18 months 
with a new model. The old ones we 
bring back to the shop, take the coin 
mechanism off and refinish whatever 
needs it and sell it to the home pool 
table market.” 

Do you find there are any essential 
operating differences in your area as 
opposed to other regions of the coun- 
try? 

“Many people are under the impres- 
sion that there is, but I don’t think so. 
The problems inherent here in our area 
are nearly the same all over. We all 
have to face loans, bonuses and legis- 
lation even though they vary, but when 
you start talking with people from 
other parts of the country you find it’s 
the same.” 



Mawdsley 


It has been said before that some 
factory and distributor representatives 
have dictated to operators as to what 
is best for them. Have you experienced 
this during your career? 

“Yes I have. Only certain distribu- 
tors are guilty. Some we’ve never had 
a problem with, these are the ones who 
run their business like a business, the 
ones that make us WANT to patronize 
them. The ones that dictate are the 
new distributors, these, come and go. 


I had one new distributor come to me 
once and say, ‘we insist on you doing 
‘X’ amount of business with us. If you 
don’t, we’ll solicit your locations and 
give them to someone who will deal 
with us.’ Well, I say, ‘you better start 
now. I don’t do business with people 
who dictate to me how much money I 
should spend with him. There’s such a 
thing as free enterprise that allows me 
to to do what I want to do. As far as 
my locations go, they can throw me 
out the minute my service isn’t ex- 
cellent’.” 

What makes you buy a particular 
brand of equipment. Does the salesman 
actually sell you or does the quality 
of the machine sell you? 

“Well, actually there’s a lot of sell- 
ing points. We like to think we buy 
‘Caddilac’ of the industry in every 
piece of equipment purchased. We 
have an open mind and have tried 
nearly every brand on the market. 
When a new brand makes an appear- 
ance, we’ll put a few out and test 
them. I’ve never refused to see a sales- 
man and give him my time. I’ve found 
that for coffee machines, Coffee-Mat 
prevails, for soda units, the Rowe im- 
presses me most, then you can’t beat 


National for cigarette and candy ma- 
chines.” 

Have you ever been approached by 
a national vending company about 
buying you out? 

“About 5 or 6 years ago one of the 
national companies approached me, 
but I refused the offer. Where would 
I go if something had materialized? 
I like this business. Actually, we have 
bought up some 10 smaller companies 
ourselves, along with one (1) larger 
one.” 

What status does 2 for .250 phono- 
graph play have in your area? 

“I don’t think they’re any ma- 
chines on 2 for 250 play around here. 
We don’t have any, but eventually 
everyone will have to change over. We 
were one of the first companies to 
change to 100 play and many people 
said we wouldn’t survive, but we did 
and we’ll survive 2 for 250 when it 
comes.” 

What technique do you use in pro- 
gramming your music locations? 

“Our technique is Ralph Hynes, this 
man knows each individual location 
like the back of his hand. He programs

ADVANCE VENDING MOVES INTO MODERN $250,000 — 18,000 SQ. FT. BUILDING 



Morris Lerner (left), last week’s Profile subject and president of Advance is 
shown here talking with a phone customer while Jack Shawcross (far right) 
confers with parts manager in Advances new building. 


“With the increased demand for 
coin operated vending machines, Ad- 
vance Vending Distributors, needing 
better facilities to service vending ma- 
chine operators, recently moved from 
their former location at 123 Falso 
Drive to a new, modern $250,000 build- 
ing with 18,000 square feet of floor 
space, strategically located on a 4% 
acre plot off Exit 35 of the New York 
State Thruway, at 601 Thompson 
Road North,” said Morris Lerner, 
president of the firm. 

Advance Vending Distributors are 
the exclusive distributors for Avenco, 
Smokeshop, Candyshop, U.S. Automa- 
tic, Steelmade Vending equipment. A 
staff of five salesmen cover the entire 
Northeast and Middle Atlantic states. 
Advance Vending Distributors, is one 
of the leaders in national sales for 
these products. The past year has 
shown an increase in employees from 
9 to 18. 


Showroom 

“In our new facilities, we will have 
the largest, fully air conditioned show- 
room in the East for the display of 
vending equipment. It is planned that 
all upcoming special vending equip- 


ment shows will take place in our 
showroom,” Lerner said. 

“The parts department, one of the 
mainstays of Advance, has been in- 
creased 500%. With the increased and 
enlarged parts department vending 
operators can be better served with 
parts now available for every machine 
to keep them in operating condition. 

“The service department, the most 
modern in the East, has also been in- 
creased and outfitted with the very 
latest in service equipment to rebuild, 
repair and service all types of vending 
machines. A modern paint booth is 
part of the new equipment. 

Drive-in Facilities 

“The new building has drive-in fa- 
cilities for small trucks to load and 
unload right in the building. To ac- 
commodate larger trucks, a ramp has 
been built right to the dock with a 
hydraulic lift to aid in loading and 
unloading.” 

Lerner said, “that the new building, 
with all of it’s modem facilities will 
be capable of handling the anticipated 
new business which is expected in the 
coming years.” Lerner further stated 
that, “sales for 1968 should exceed 
$ 2 , 000 , 000 .” 


Cardinal Vending To Expand 


MANSFIELD, Ohio — The Cardinal 
Vending Company has awarded the 
general contract for construction of a 
11,000 squai-e foot office and ware- 
house facility in Mansfield, Ohio, to 
the R. G. Beer Corporation. 

The concrete and steel structure 
will be located on a three acre site ad- 
joining Cardinal’s present plant. The 
new building will be attached to the 
present facility and match it archi- 
tectually. 

The addition will about equal the 
size of the present building, which 
was completed in 1962. The new build- 
ing will be started this month and 
completed before the end of the year. 


Thomas J. Vogenthaler, manager of 
Cardinal Vending, said the new build- 
ing will provide space for product 
storage, receiving and shipping, and a 
new shop for rebuilding equipment. 

Cardinal Vending Company is a 
wholly owned subsidiary of The 
Standard Oil Company (Ohio). It ac- 
quired Vending International of Mans- 
field in 1965 and Ankney Food Service, 
Inc., of Dayton in 1967. 

In addition to its home office and 
warehouse in Mansfield, Cardinal has 
12 other divisional offices in Ohio. It 
also has facilities in Columbus, Ind., 
and Pittsburgh, Pa.

Hooks Vending Wins PACM Award 
For "Outstanding Cup Of Coffee" 


NEW YORK — An outstanding cup of 
coffee has earned membership in the 
restaurant and vending machine in- 
dustry’s most exclusive club for 
Hook’s Vending Service, 2900 Enter- 
prise, Indianapolis, Indiana. 

The Coffee Brewing Center of the 
Pan - American Coffee Bureau an- 
nounced recently that the local vend- 
ing machine operator had qualified for 
its 1968 “Golden Cup” Award for the 
fresh brew coffee vending machine lo- 
cated at: 2900 Enterprise, Indianapo- 
lis, Indiana. 

The Award is presented to vending 
operators for specific locations where 
the machine is properly adjusted to 
vend a quality cup of coffee. 

A golden cup, mounted on a special 
plaque, will be presented shortly by a 
field representative of the Coffee 
Brewing Center. 

The Center recommends that only 
top quality, freshly roasted ground 
coffee be used, and that the coffee be 
| brewed at the ratio of two to two-and- 
one-half gallons of water per pound, 

, producing 45 to 50 cups of coffee. 

If special laboratory tests indicate 
the machine is dispensing a quality 
beverage, one of the Center’s field rep- 


resentatives makes an unannounced 
on-the-spot inspection of the vending 
machine to sample additional coffee, 
obsei’ve the vending machine’s func- 
tioning, and check cleanliness. 

The award is for one year and can 
be revoked when the recipient’s coffee 
falls below the standards recommend- 
ed by the Coffee Brewing Center. 


Bertsch Appointed 
Program Chairman For 
'68 NAMA Convention 

CHICAGO, ILL. — Charles E. Bertsch, 
Bertsch Vending Company, Inc., War- 
saw, Ind., has been appointed program 
chairman of the 1968 NAMA Con- 
vention and Trade Show of Automatic- 
Merchandising, according to Meyer 
Gelfand, president of the National Au- 
tomatic Merchandising Association. 

Scheduled from September 14 to 17 
at the Philadelphia Civic Center, Phil- 
adelphia, Pa., the program discussion 
meetings will be conducted during the 
morning hours and the exhibits will be 
open during the afternoon of each 
Convention day. 


MA WDSLEY PROFILE 

(Continued from page 75 


I for each location, he knows if a loca- 
I tion has a particular ethnic following, 
he knows if there’s a country & west- 
ern element — he can match the sound 
] of any location we have. One of the 
best ways to keep a location happy is 
to honor requests, this way he feels 
as though he is a special location and 
he respects that.” 

From an operator’s point of view, 
how do you feel about the present 
state of the business? 

“The number of music locations are 
on the decrease, especially the ones 
catering to middle-age married cou- 
ples. This is partly due to national 
restaurant chains, such as the Howard 
Johnsons, and partly due to urban 
renewal of depressed areas. The large 
restaurant chains are turning to music 
background systems, therefore elimi- 
nating the need for a jukebox, and the 
locations being torn down with urban 
renewal are not going up again. A 
few years back I was appointed by the 
mayor to a position on the Holyoke 
Planning Board of Urban Renewal and 
since then approximately 50 to 60 lo- 
cations have been pulled by urban re- 
newal and many of them have not re- i 
opened. 

“Vending has enjoyed it’s largest 
expansion during the past few years 
and I can see no end to its growth. 

“Amusement games are back on the 
increase, due largely to the improved 


‘climate’, the days of the one-balls are 
gone. The gambling stigma has 
passed. Today, amusement games of- 
fer clean, wholesame fun for the 
American family.” 

M hat about the future, care to com- 
ment ? 

“It looks fabulous! I can see no end, 
there’s no peripheral for the business. 
The only thing I think that might hold 
some companies back is that of acquir- 
ing help. This is on eof the biggest 
problems facing the industry. Then, I . 
think smaller firms should expand at 
a rate of not biting off more than they 
can chew. They shouldn’t tie up avail- 
able money. Instead put it to good use 
in the present firm structure. This bus- 
iness is constantly expanding and I 
think its still in its infancy. There are 
so many new developments coming 
along every day — electronically, with * 
freeze-dried products, there’s just no 
end to it.” 

Public Relations — what do you think 
about it? 

“What we need most along the lines 
of public relations, is community re- 
lations on the local level. On a grass- 
roots basis whereby each individual, 
contributes to the social and economic ' 
welfare of his own community. Start- 
ing with the man who has 2^000 ma- 
chines right on down the line to the 
guy with 25 machines.”

S. D. OPS TO MEET 

ABERDEEN, S.D. — The Music and 
Vending Assn, of South Dakota mem- 
bership will meet at the Holiday Inn 
here in Aberdeen Sunday and Monday 
August 18-19. Top topic for discussion 
will be the group’s planned 8-ball 
tournament, scheduled to get under- 
way iSept. 9th. 

According to the association’s presi- 
dent Mac Hasvold, the registration of 
sanctioned locations for the tourney 
are not coming in are quickly as he 
would like at this stage and he urges 
all interested table operators to con- 
tact him on or before July 26th in 
order to receive all necessary material. 

Those planning on attending the 
August meeting should contact Dean 
Schroeder who will make all reserva- 
tions at the Holiday Inn for them. His 
number is 229-0760. 

Association secretary Earl Porter 
advises that the two day meeting will 
also feature several forum discussions 
of local industry problems on Sunday 
afternoon. However, as Earl states, 
“the value of these discussions de- 
pends strictly on the number of op- 
erators who attend.” Get those regis- 
trations in early and let’s make this a 
good one.

WATERTOWN WOES — If tavern 
attendance was just a wee bit off the 
past two weeks, the 11,000 New York 
area lads who made the annual trek 
up to Camp Drum with the N.Y. Army 
National Guard in early July just 
might have accounted for the absence. 
A certain CB editor, who made his 
sixth and last trip into the dustbowl 
of the North with the rest of the troop- 
ers, saw once again how much the 
music and games mean to the boys on 
post whose principal source of enter- 
tainment is found in the dozen or so 
snack bars, service clubs and beer 
halls. Needless to say, the jukes, pins, 
rifle games and pool tables there were 
pumping continuously during off-duty 
hours. The undisputed hit tune on the 
post was, and probably still is, ‘Choo 
Choo Train’ by the Box Tops on Mala 
Records. The jukes, which for the most 
part were either Wurlitzers or Rock- 
Ola’s, were normally up full blast to 
get the music out over the din of hun- 
dreds of voices and stomping feet but 
The sound was straight and true. 
Really makes you marvel at the tech- 
nical excellence of today’s coin phono- 
graphs. There’s nothing like it. All 
varieties of pingames, none over three 
years old, banged fast and furious. 
Really no favorites here — you had to 
stand in line and take whatever game 
became vacant first. Very little vending 
at Drum since it’s pretty tough to 
undersell the Post Exchange. All in 
all, Drum offers its operators an excel- 
lent seasonal spot for music and 
games. Too bad it can’t last all year 
long. 

DEEPEST SYMPATHY — Got the 
sad word on the passing of Valley 
Vendors founder Isaac Chriss from the 
firm’s current manager Joel Kaufman. 
Perhaps Joel summed up Isaac’s career 
in this business best when he wi'ote: 
“He was the kind of man who worked 
hard with his muscles and his mind. 
He was always ready to help anyone 
in need. He fixed vending machines, 
installed and did what was needed. I 
don’t mean once in a while, but every 
day; and he still had time and energy 
to work in all the service organizations 
he belonged to. He was a good father, 
grandfather and great-grandfather.” 

TABLE TOURNEYS— Non-stopper 
Len Schneller of U.S. Billiards info’s 
Johnny Colgan’s New England table 
tourney almost set to get rolling with 
100 sanctioned locations already regis- 
tered. Johnny’s with W.S. Distributing, 
Seeburg outlet in the New England 
area handling U.S. Billiard products. 
i Things are also starting to perk up in 
the Pennsy contest and out in Kansas. 
We heard from Fred Gain of the Illi- 
nois association that his group will 
decide whether to stage their own 
tourney when they convene for the 
Sept, meeting. On the business side, 
Len says the U.S. Billiards factory is 
now turning out almost as many of 
the red and white ‘Leader’ tables as 
the traditional wood-grained Pro line. 
Really catching on and does it look 
good on location. 

ON THE MOVE— Wurlitzer’s A. D. 
Palmer, just back from vacation, re- 
ports that Florida distrib Ron Rood 
and his daughters are set to visit New 
I York City early August. While here, 
they’ll be taking in ‘Marne.’ Temfic 
i show! . . . Davis Distributing’s P.R. 
and promotion chief Billy Roseboom off 
enjoying his vacation last week. When 
he returns to the job at the Syracuse 
headquarters. Bill will be putting the 
finishing touches to an extensive bro- 
chure outlining all of Davis Distribut- 
ing’s interests in the communications 
industry in the Upstate area. . . . An- 
other of Syrcause’s fine sons, big Tom 
Taranlelli, is putting his seal of hit ! 
approval to the Beach Boys’ ‘Do It 
Again’ waxing on Capitol. Bobby T., 
while agreeing with Tom, likes Nancy 
Sinatra's new ‘Happy’ on Reprise and ; 
says both disks should reap mucho 
coins for the territory’s music ops. 



the Route 


Jimmy Galuppi shakes his head and 
says Boots Randolph’s ‘Gentle On My 
Mind’ on Monument is the big new one. 

VISITORS— The IAAP’s executive 
director Bob Blundred and New Or- 
leans amusement park impressario 
Harry Batt, Jr. dropped by the CB 
offices for an extended chit chat about 
the business. . . . Pete Tullio of Inter- 
state United also in town with Fred 
Poliak (Vendisplay Advertising) dis- 
cussing plans for the new ad medium 
which utilizes the facades of vending 
units on location as an ad medium. 

EQUIPMENT NEWS— Big surprise 
release of the month is the Irving 
Kaye Company’s brand new amuse- 
ment piece called ‘Batting Practice’. 
The unit actually tosses the ball into 
the air and requires a bit of real skill 
for players to run up a good score. 
Should make for great collections. . . . 
Bally’s new ‘Safari’, first 2-player by 
the company in a dog’s age, now on 
display at Runyon’s Springfield show- 
room and doesn’t that jungle motif 
look great. Sure to attract the folks. 
As Morris Rood quipped (and we wish 
he didn’t) “get Safari and put a tiger 
on the route!”. . . . Frank Schroeder 
info’s we spelled the name of Fischer’s 
new coin table line ‘Marquee’ with one 
instead of two “e’s” last week but no 
matter how you spell it, he says, it’s 
sure to eliminate the trade’s “playfield 
problems” for good. Matter of fact, 
the Fischer company is so sure, they’re 
guaranteeing the playfield’s profici- 
ency for five years. . . . Another big 
surprise was the introduction of Joe 
Duarte’s new Delta 77 pool table from 
his California factory. This appears 
to be the coinvet’s first big entry into 
the coin table market, although he has 
been marketing a home model for 
some time now. We wish him the very 
finest success in this venture. 

VENDING NEWS— The town of 
Bretton Woods, New Hampshire will 
play host to this year’s National Assn, 
of Concessionaires Convention. The 
affair will be staged at the famed Mt. 
Washington Hotel, August 26-29. . . . 
The American Tobacco Co. is in the 
process of acquiring a better than 
50% share of a major British tobacco 
manufacturer called Gallagher Ltd. 
This is not the first time American 
Tobacco has been involved in the Brit- 
ish tobacco industry as it had been 
responsible back in 1927 for the de- 
velopment of the successful Kensitas 
brand. . . . Just learned that registra- 
tion fees for non-members of NAMA 
interested in attending the Sept, con- 
vention has been set at $25 per person. 
No charge from member firms, how- 
ever, will be required. 


Milwaukee Mentions 

When it becomes almost impossible 
to take a day off for some relaxation, 
it’s pretty obvious that business must 
be, not only good, but GREAT! Such 
was the case, this past week especially, 
at Pioneer Sales & Services. Joel Klei- 0 
man and Sam Cooper have been chalk- 
ing up lots of extra work hours trying 
to keep up with increased activity in 
all departments — phonographs, pool 
tables, vending equipment, etc.! . . . 
Empire’s Bob Rondeau will be wel- 
comed back to the office today (22) 
folowing a brief vacation. . . . Local ,, 
outlet, WEMP, is issuing a bi-weekly 
news letter to keep us all informed 
of what’s happening at the station! . . . 
As for the singles picture, we called 
John Jankowski at Radio Doctors who 
listed the following as active with op- 
erators: “4-5-6 (Now I’m Alone)” by 
Len Barry (Amy), “Down At Lulu’s’% 
by I he Ohio Express (Buddah), “Do 
You Wanna Dance” by the Love So- 
ciety (Scepter) and “Classical Gas” by 
Mason Williams (WB).

Chicago Chatter 

CHICAGO — Funeral services for 
Jones B. Frankel, president and foun- 
der of Jones Frankel Advertising Co., 
were held Tuesday, July 16 in Piser 
Memorial Chapel. Mr. Frankel died in 
Kaplan Pavilion hospital late Satur- 
day (13) following a lengthy illness. 
Interment was in West Lawn Ceme- 
tery. 

Mr. Frankel was a prominent ad- 
vertising executive for more than 
forty years. His agency serviced such 
coin machine accounts as D. Gottlieb 
& Co., Fischer Mfg. Co. and Midway 
Mfg. Co. 

Mr. Frankel was a member of the 
American Assn, of Advertising Agen- 
cies and the Federated Advertisers of 
Chicago. 

He is survived by his widow, Flor- 
ence and a sister, Gertrude. 

The big news from Bally Mfg. Corp. 
this week is the release of “Safari,” 
firm’s first 2-player flipper since ’66! 
Shipments are enroute to Bally dis- 
tributors across the country — so 
watch for ’em! . . . From the local 
NAMA office comes word that Charles 
E. Bertsch (Bertsch Vending Co., Inc., 
Warsaw, Ind.) was appointed program 
chairman for the 1968 NAMA con- 
vention in Philadelphia (9/14-17) . . . 
Chicago Dynamic Industries got 
back into full production last Mon- 
day (15) after a 2-weck vacation and 
everyone’s plunging into the accumu- 
lation of orders. More Secore is asking- 
customers to be a little patient, 
though, while efforts are being made 
to “catch up”! 

It’s back to full production at Rock- 
Ola Mfg. Corp. Vacation time is over 
and all hands are concentrating on 
meeting the demand for the firm’s 
current lineup topped, of course, by 
the “Princess Deluxe.” . . . MOA ex- 
ecutive vice president Fred Granger 
is scheduled to address the upcoming 
Montana Coin Machine Operators 
Assn, weekend meeting (7/26-28) in 
Helena, Montana. Fred will also be 
on hand for the Wisconsin Music 
Merchants Assn, summer meeting, 
August 18, in the Dell View Hotel, 
Lake Delton, Wisconsin . . . These 
are exceptionally busy days at Empire 
Dist. Gil Kitt, Joe Robbins, et al, are 
trying to keep pace with current 
business demands and, at the same 
time, make preparations for the big 
move into new quarters which is 
scheduled to take place within the 
next few weeks! . . . Nice to hear that 
the recent KAMA meeting was such 
a huge success. 

Association secretary Ronald Cazel 
urges all members to be present at 
the September meeting (7-8) in Man- 
hattan, Kansas, during which a new 
slate of officers and board members 
will be elected . . . Called the busy 
premises of Atlas Music Co. and 
chatted briefly with Joe Kline. Busy’s 
the word, says Joe, “there’s been no 
let-up at all and we couldn’t be hap- 
pier”! ... As of this writing the 
Chicago area has experienced the 
fifth straight day of 90 degree plus 
temperatures! To put it mildly — we’re 
having a heat wave . . . World Wide’s 
Fred Skor is taking a brief vacation 
this week to return to his desk on 
Monday (22). Howie Freer tells us 
the distrib’s export department is 
especially busy these days with the 
big demand centering around flippers 
and phonographs! . . . Needless to 
say, the big excitement at Williams 
Electronics Inc. is the new “Student 
Prince”, described by Bill DeSelm 
as one of the. firm’s most successful 
4-players! They’re in full production 
now and literally swamped with 
orders! 


California Clippings 

SUMMER VACATIONS MAKE FOR 
INVENTORY BUILDUP — Inventory 
buildup is apparent at C. A. Robin- 
son and Company, due to factory 
summer vacations. Talking about 
vacations, it appears that time off 
will be limited to long weekends this 


summer for the “entire” staff. Mike 
Hall, service manager, takes the first 
“vacation” and plans to go up to the 
high Sierra’s for a few days of fishing. 
Al Bettleman reports that additional 
warehouse space has been rented in 
the back of the C.A.R. offices. If 
negotiations are successfully com- 
pleted, the additional space will be- 
come part of Robinsons’ fiscal plant. 
This will enhance and accelerate the 
expansion plans of the company. We 
have a bit of a news flash now. Hank 
Tronick’s son, Mike, is “handy man” 
at a gi$ scout camp on Catalena Is- 
land for the summer, was a contestant 
on the “Dating Game”, and was won! 
The lucky gal that won him was Miss 
Everest of Washington state. The 
prize included being picked up in a 
chauffered limousine, wined and 
dined (in this case because of age, 
coked and root beered) at Dino’s and 
then on to the Sunset Strip for some 
dancing at Gazzarri’s. Besides all this 
he was awarded a Muntz Stereo Pak. 
The show will be airing on Thursday 
at 2:30 western time on ABC. Now 
that you have been alerted, watch. 
Bring in those portable sets. As a 
matter of fact, Hank is renting a 
color TV for the office! 

“GUN SMOKE” TAKES OFF LIKE 
A BULLET — According to Bob Por- 
tale of Portale Automatic Sales, the 
new Chicago Coin “Gun Smoke” two 
player has taken off like a ball of 
fire. For those who are not aware this 
game has the old twinkle action. 
We are also informed that Gottlieb’s 
“Funland” is still doing an excellent 
job. Hear that they just completed 
a Rock-Ola vendors service school, 
headed by Ed Lorkowski, a Rock-Ola 
factory engineer. Bob also tells us 
that the Rock-Ola phonographs have 
received tremendous acceptance from 
operators. 

FROM THE RECORD RACKS— Jerry 
Barish of California Music reports 
in with the news that “Down at 
Lulu’s” by the Ohio Express on Bud- 
dah seems to be the faster breaking 
record around this week. Another 
Lulu is doing pretty well too. This 
Lulu is of “To Sir With Love” fame, 
and she is out with her newest deck 
“Morning Dew” on Epic. Looks as 
though Tammi Terrell and Marvin 
Gaye may have hit the winners 
circle again with their latest “You’re 
All I Need to Get By” on Tamla. “Mr. 
Businessman” by Ray Stevens on 
Monument appears to be chart bound. 
Last but not least Dustry Springfield 
is coming on strong with “Sweet Ride” 
on Philips. 

Estey Elected President 

Richard Estey, Automatic Cigarette 
Service, Portland, Ore., was elected 
president of the Northwest Automatic
